Chapter I. The beginning of things. They were not railway children to begin with. I don't suppose they had ever thought about railways except as a means of getting to Maskelyne and Cook's, the Pantomime, Zoological Gardens, and Madame Tussaud's. Although the South started early to build railways, it concentrated on short lines linking cotton regions to oceanic or river ports and the absence of an interconnected network was a major handicap during the Civil War.

The North and Midwest. The railway system of Great Britain started with the building of local isolated wooden wagonways starting in the s. A patchwork of local rail links operated by small private railway companies developed in the late 18th century.

These isolated links expanded during the railway boom of the s into a national network, although still run by dozens of competing companies. Now travellers can book train tickets four months in advance as the Railways has decided to extend the advance reservation period from 60.
