Summary

The opening of the pioneering Liverpool Manchester Railway in 1830 marked the beginning of the railway network's vital role in changing the face of Britain. Fire Steam celebrates the vision of the ambitious Victorian pioneers who developed this revolutionary transport system and the navvies who cut through the land to enable a country-wide railway to emerge. From the early days of steam to electrification, via the railways' magnificent contribution in two world wars, the chequered history of British Rail and the buoyant future of the train, Fire Steam examines the importance of the railway and how it helped to form the Britain of today.
