  • Fifty Railways that Changed the Course of History is a fascinating and beautifully presented guide to the train lines and rail companies that have had the greatest impact on modern civilization.
  • Entries range from the Metropolitan Line of the London Underground, the world’s first underground railway, to the Pacific Railroad, the first transcontinental railroad in North America.
  • In order to justify the assertion that they literally 'changed the course of history,' each railway is judged by its influence in five categories: Engineering, Society, commerce, Politics, and Military.
