For a great many people, young and old, the era of steam trains is inseparably linked with romance, excitement and adventure. From modest beginnings there grew a transport system which transformed the world. Fast, reliable travel from town to town, country to country, even continent to continent became the order of the day. In addition to technological progress there was the development of the famous named trains including the Golden Arrow, the Broadway Limited, the Malle des Indes, the Blue Train, and the legendary Orient Express. This comprehensive survey of the world of steam trains fully captures the nostalgic appeal of the subject.
