Fascinating... An excellent examination of one the most extraordinary engineering feats of the 19th century. * Daily Express *
With characteristic clarity, Wolmar argues that no railway has been so geopolitically important. This may be "a heavy burden for a humble iron road" to carry, but his history makes a convincing case. -- Andrew Martin * Mail on Sunday *
Does justice to the tale of the world's longest railway... Free of niche anorak jargon, Wolmar's writing is like any self-respecting railway should be: direct, pacey and open to all. * Lonely Planet Traveller *
