In the aftermath of the 'Railway Mania' of the 1840s Britain boasted an unrivalled network of train services. While many people were amazed and excited by the prospect of travelling by these technological marvels, as with all novelties there were many nervous or bewildered others. This 'handy book', published in 1862, provided suggestions for making the most of the journey. Offering advice about the best travelling costume, the dangers involved in sitting on top of the carriages, how to approach conversation with fellow passengers and, crucially, how to ensure that your wife follows the strict timetable, it gives a charming and entertaining insight into how the early railways were viewed by their Victorian passengers.
