This is a collection of fascinating and diverse British railway facts and stories to read in any spare moment.

Travel back to the age of steam and discover the world's oldest active steam locomotive before becoming up-to-date with railways in films, such as Harry Potter.

In addition to the fascinating lists of longest tunnels, widest bridges and most powerful locomotives, ponder the dismal failure of Brunel's atmospheric railway in South Devon, before reading the rags-to riches tale of Frank Hornby.

From the sublime to the ridiculous and the euphoric to the poignant, every railway enthusiast is catered for.
