Celebrate the heyday of passenger rail travel around Britain with this beautiful Times railway book.

Take a journey back to the boom time for Britain's railways, through a unique collection of fascinating stories, photographs, posters and railway ephemera.

Explore a century of rail travel in Britain, covering three important periods:

* 1923 to 1947. Railway companies are grouped into the 'Big Four'
* 1948 to 1994. Nationalization heralds the era of British Railways
