British Railway Accidents and Incidents in Maps and Pictures describes some of the most interesting incidents that have occurred on Britain’s railways over the last 200 years. From the earliest misfortune – the sad fate of William Huskisson MP, mown down in 1830 at the opening ceremony of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway by that most famous of engines, Stephenson’s Rocket – this book gives the reader an absorbing ride through time, charting minor incidents along with major calamities.

Original photographs from postcards portray vividly the scenes just as they occurred and period railway maps pinpoint the exact locations where they happened.
