The formative years of Britain's railway network produced a host of ideas, activities and characters, quite a few of which now seem not only highly unusual, but sometimes little short of ridiculous. Weird schemes and designs, extravagant behavior, reckless competition and larger-than-life characters all featured in the genuine struggle of the railway system to evolve. And while regulation and common sense brought about more uniform and responsible practices, factors like the weather and the innate complexity of railway operation continued to produce a stream of nonstandard incidents and outcomes, from wild storms to telegraphic howlers. This book, by ex-railwayman Geoff Body, captures over 150 entertaining snippets, stories and strange and unusual facts from an ample supply of railway curiosities.
