    Excerpt from The Railways of the World

    Even those who have no knowledge of the technicalities of loco motive design are interested in the railway engine it seizes upon the fanciful mind of a child, and its appeal grows rather than lessens with the passing years, because the adult mind better grasps the far-reaching utility of a contrivance that has contributed more to happiness than any other invention. Nor has the advent of electric traction robbed the steam locomotive of any of its fascina tion. An electric train, with its comparative silence and smoothness, somehow appeals less to the imagination than one headed by a throbbing, panting monster, which seems alive in hauling its load against time.

    It is sometimes urged against a book of this character, that necessarily it must get speedily out of date, but the same objection holds good in practically every department of human activity. Railway progress never ceases; the old ever gives place to the new. Even while this work has been in preparation important projects have been completed and others commenced. There have been notable Changes in the personnel of various large railway systems: honours have come to some officials, while others have been signalled to their rest - but the railways, being an integral part of the national life, go on without a pause.
