Stuart Hylton looks at the way that Britain has undergone fundamental changes since the beginning of the railway age, and the contribution the railways have made to those changes. Over the last 170 years their impact has not just been on the physical landscape, but also on the social landscape. Topics include the Victorians' attitudes to class and to women, the extent to which the railways gave rise to new types of crime, and how they influenced the decision of Parliament, the town planners and the development of new urban communities, the birth of Metroland, the ways that wars are fought, how we live and work, the growth of the holiday and mass spectator sports, as well as their role within an integrated transport system and the effects of the Beeching cuts on so many rural communities.
