Overview

From the atmospheric age of steam to today’s high powered electric vehicles, The Train takes readers on a visually stunning ride through history. Much more than a collection of models, this volume offers insight into the way trains have shaped the modern age. It looks at train design (including New York Central’s sleek Twentieth Century Limited, France’s high-speed TGV, and Japan’s Shinkansen “bullet”); the splendid architecture of the top train stations; and the important role trains played in movies. Rail enthusiasts, as well as anyone interested in modern social history, will find this an irresistible journey.
