We believe this will become the definitive book about this famous railway and its history. It is the first full history of the Caledonian Railway ever to be published. Based on original source documents and contemporary newspapers and journals and fully referenced, it traces its development, through troubles both legal and commercial, as an operating railway and a business with its own distinctive style. Profusely illustrated, it is an essential book not only for those with an interest in the old railway companies and their often tumultuous relationships with each other, but for the light it sheds on Scottish society and commerce during the long high noon of industrialisation and growth.
