More About The Train by Jonathan Glancey
 
 
 
Overview
From the atmospheric age of steam to today s high powered electric vehicles, "The Train" takes readers on a visually stunning ride through history. Much more than a collection of models, this volume offers insight into the way trains have shaped the modern age. It looks at train design (including New York Central s sleek Twentieth Century Limited, France s high-speed TGV, and Japan s Shinkansen bullet ); the splendid architecture of the top train stations; and the important role trains played in movies. Rail enthusiasts, as well as anyone interested in modern social history, will find this an irresistible journey."
