John Cooke Bourne (1814–96) captured one of the most exciting periods in modern British history – the building of the railways. His work, reproduced in this book for the first time in more than forty years, recorded the construction and operation of the London & Birmingham Railway and the Great Western Railway, two of the largest engineering projects of the nineteenth century.In his panoramic yet intricate topographical sketches, Bourne showed that as well as being a feat of modern engineering a railway could sit comfortably in the landscape of the English countryside. He celebrated the skills and determination of the railway builders who were reshaping the cities, towns and countryside of the 1830s and ’40s. And, most of all, he demonstrated that a railway could be a thing of real beauty.

This volume delves into the rich connections between rail travel and the creation of cultural products from short stories to novels, from photographs to travel guides, and from artistic manifestos of the avant-garde to Freud’s psychology. Each of the contributions engages in critical readings of textual or visual representations of trains across a wide spectrum of time periods and traditions—from English and American to Mexican, West African, and European literary cultures.
