Get ready to travel back in time to the golden age of railways. This fully illustrated book, filled with photographs and detailed drawings, takes you on a journey to the majestic railway buildings of the 19th and early 20th century, exploring the architectural legacy they have left us. The scale and ambition of these constructions reflected the pride of the railway companies who commissioned them. The result was a raft of classically designed stations, mighty viaducts, tunnels and bridges, all of which inspired awe in a travelling public receptive to the splendour of a new kind of transport that was changing their lives. Today, helped along by the popularity of preserved steam railways, these wonderful examples of architecture are widely appreciated for their beauty and the role they played in our social and industrial past. In this book, author Trevor Yorke describes the huge range of buildings associated with the golden age of steam, including waiting rooms, booking halls, stations large and small, and hotels. He explains the dynamics of their construction, the materials used and the myriad styles employed by leading architects and engineers of the day.
