Written by Christian Wolmar, author of the critically acclaimed The Great Railroad Revolution , The Iron Road is a richly illustrated account of the rise of the rails across the world.

From the historic moment in September 1830 when the first train ran between Liverpool and Manchester, to the high speed trains bulleting across Asia and Europe, The Iron Road: An Illustrated History of the Railroad looks at how railroads have changed the world.

Photographs, maps, paintings, and illustrations bring events and locations to life, adding a unique visual quality to the stories of great invention, feats of mind-boggling engineering, groundbreaking changes in trade and commerce, and tales of adventurers, visionaries, and rogues.

The Iron Road is the third title in DK's successful illustrated histories format, which combines text-rich narratives with beautiful visual design.
