A collection of gruesome tales from the early tracks of Britain
The early railways of Britain revolutionised public transport and helped the Industrial Revolution flourish.

Rosa Matheson’s Death, Dynamite and Disaster: A Grisly British Railway History explores and dissects the story behind the creation of the country’s railway network.
