In this special boxed set, two authoritative illustrated volumes offer a world encyclopedia of locomotives and a fascinating tour of the most celebrated railway journeys of the world. The history of locomotive and railway development is described in detail, from the very beginnings of locomotive design, to the development of steam power, and the transition from steam to diesel and electric power, analysing how these changes transformed the locomotive into a superior passenger and freight-pulling machine. Over 95 outstanding railway journeys are vividly evoked, from short journeys steeped in history such as Stephenson's 27km line from Bedford to Bletchley, to the transcontinental lines in Canada and the European Orient Express, and the luxury of the "Palace on Wheels" in Rajasthan. Written by leading experts in the field and illustrated with over 1400 photographs, this classic book collection will inspire rail enthusiasts and armchair travellers alike.
