Overview

Julian Holland provides a collection of first-hand accounts from people whose lives have been changed by the fortunes of Britain's railways. Full of personal anecdote and human interest, each one of the 45 stories—many never published before—provides a wealth of anecdote about historical and social change in Britain as well as some humorous encounters. From the 19th-century Eton Master who wants to keep his boys from the "evils" of the new railway to the reminiscences of a woman train driver in the 1980s, this is the first book of its kind to give a mouthpiece to the forgotten voices of Britain's railway heritage.
