Written alongside a BBC2 series, Locomotion examines the extensive impact of railways on the modern world.

From opening up new connections and opportunities for commerce, their influence was vast, pervasive and exhilarating – propelled by industrial innovation and heralding the beginning of a new era in trade and expansion of empires across the world.

Workers were moved and older industries declined, transformed by steam engines and electricity. New cities sprang up across India, Russia, Africa and Latin America, becoming the territories that we recognise today.

The novelty of the trains experienced by Victorian passengers are a world away from the trains we use today, but the potential those early travellers saw is still being built on.

Nicholas Faith is a journalist and author. He is a former senior editor for The Sunday Times and The Economist and has written extensively on spirits, wines and transport. In 2012 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Bureau National Interprofessional de Cognac. He is also the founder of the International Spirits Challenge. He is the author of twenty-three books, including The World the Railways Made, Australia’s Liquid Gold, Derail: Why Trains Crash, Blackbox: Inside the World’s Worst Air Crashes and Nicholas Faith’s Guide to Cognac.

I was thinking along those lines
Thanks Boz..
Excellent Boz - being obsessed with railways myself (love the Wolmar books) and being an ex-driver, this is for me !
I think it is criminal the ridiculous amounts of closures of lines (the number around me is staggering) if the railways had got the same financial backing the roads did, there would have been no Demon Beeching (May he rot in Hell along with Marples) and the lines would still be there

Strangely not downloading. Is it my wifi or Amazon ?
Tried to download other books with no problem.
ONLY this one NOT downloading
Eventually got it. Had to sort out my Amazon devices
