OS Nock gives a readable and highly personal view of the history of railways by reference to specific artifacts - engines, rolling stock, buildings, signaling and so on - which illustrate key stages in railway development up to 1914. While it is very readable, the book lacks grid references of remains in the landscape (and so is lacking as a practical guide), and is fairly random in its approach - being more of the author's personal preferences than a comprehensive study.
