About

Wednesday 31 May at 3pm

"An encyclopedic and evocative history that's not just for trainspotters" The Guardian

"Monumental" The Telegraph

The Victorians’ private compartments, rugs and foot warmers may have made way for air-conditioned carriages with airline-type seating, but parts of Britain’s railway system remain the oldest in the world. Referring to his lauded book, The Railways, Simon reveals a tale of technological achievement, of shifting social classes, of safety and crime, of tourism and the changing world of work – showing us that to travel through Britain by train is to journey through time.
