"The History of Trains" features the world's most significant trains, their routes and the people who built them. All areas of rail travel are covered including high-speed passenger services, steam diesel, freight, underground, industrial and even armoured trains used in World War II. Some trains have transcended mere functionality and have gone down in folklore as a symbol of the times. Locomotives like The Rocket, Puffing Billy and even the Japanese Bullet Trains are more than simply transport; the Trans Siberian and Canadian Pacific more than just routes, and this book brings these and others to life with over 200 stunning pictures. "The History of Trains" is a must for train enthusiasts everywhere. Формат издания: 24,5 см х 28,5 см.
