Illustrated with B&W photographs and diagrams. From the cover: “John Wall’s vivid and detailed account of the Stockton & Darlington Railway, the first in the world, recalls a momentous step in technical progress. His narrative ranges widely over the social, economic and technical aspects of the history, but it also focuses on the political manoeuvrings and personality clashes that played such an important role. He gives a telling portrayal of the powerful individuals who drove the project forward — locomotive pioneer George Stephenson, for example, and businessman Edward Pease, whose combined efforts created the line.”
