Railway Magazine  |  Great British Railway Firsts  


The invention of the world’s first self-propelled railway locomotive in the form of Cornishman Richard Trevithick’s steam engine proved to be a seminal moment in world history, as the concept not only revolutionised public transport but shrank the globe.

Britain led the world in railway technology. The first public railway, the first passenger trains, the first public steam line, the first inter-city and trunk railways, and although the Germans boasted the first commercial electric railway, it was a Scotsman who built the first electric locomotive, and it is the UK that has the oldest surviving electric railway in the world.

This special publication looks at the way in which Britain led society into the modern world with the biggest innovations in transport since the invention of the wheel.

We also look at ‘firsts’ on the country’s own network - the first Pacific and the first main line diesel, areas in which it was our turn to learn from others - and the first British Railways Standard locomotive.

The first heritage railway began operating in the US, one that was newly laid on a green field site. But it was Britain - first and foremost in inventing railways - that started and developed the concept of preserving historic lines, locomotives and rolling stock, which accounts for a sizeable proportion of the nation’s tourist market today, part of our country’s proud and popular historical legacies.

   VGood Railway Mag for all Reviewed Friday, November 23, 2018
VGood Railway Mag for all national, international, Metro, Heritage, History and Network Rail covered.
   Good railway magazine Reviewed Tuesday, August 8, 2017
A good railway mag especially if you are mainly into the steam and diesel era. If you are more into modern traction then I would go for one of the other railway mags but this is great for pictures and articles on all modes of rail.
