Like movable type, the motor car, the aircraft and the Internet, the train revolutionised the way we negotiate the world. This visual history charts the development of the train around the globe, from the atmospheric age of steam, through the evolution of diesel and electric locomotives, right up to the ultra high-speed streamlined flyers of the present day.

More than just a collection of different locomotives and trains, this selection of images with accompanying commentary from Jonathan Glancey offers a fascinating insight into the ways in which the train has made an impact upon our age, from its role in industry, war and politics to its influence upon architecture and film.
