The Caledonian - a History
Surprisingly this is the first detailed history of the Caledonian Railway, and fascinating it is, especially in how close it frequently came to disaster as it sought to expand. But eventually it emerged as ‘Scotland’s Imperial Railway’, projecting a solid image all over the country south of a line from Aberdeen to Fort William.
All is well told in this readable book, which also contains a chapter on the development of the Caley’s locomotives.
