Beautifully done and fascinating history of the design of railway passenger cars in England from the open coaches of the 1830s to the Advanced Passenger Trains of the 1980s. Eye-opening description of how it took an Act of Parliament to force railways to carry third class passengers in closed carriages (before they had often had to travel attached to goods train in open cars with holes in the floor to let the rain drain out), through the introduction of Pullman cars on the Midland Railway, the glories of Edwardian design, and the changes through World War II and after nationalization. The development of railway carriages combines social history and product design and this book combines the two perfectly. Illustrated throughout with 120 black and white photos.
