This book aims to tell the story of how railroads all over the world came to be. The author chose representative railroads, rather than covering every railroad in the world. His purpose was to give a background to the romantic notions people came to associate with railroads so he might humanize the transportations' services. He includes special railroads, like the longest toy railway, the world's highest line and the first trans-continental railway in Canada.
