Summary
"Britain gave railways to the world, yet its own network is the most expensive (definitely) and the worst (probably) in Western Europe. Trains are deeply embedded in the national psyche and folklore yet it is considered uncool to care about them. For Matthew Engel the railway system is the ultimate expression of Britishness. It represents all the nation's ingenuity, incompetence, nostalgia, corruption, humour, capacity for suffering, and even sexual repression. To uncover its mysteries, Engel has travelled the system from Penzance to Thurso, exploring its history and talking to people from politicians to platform staff. He discovers what he calls perhaps the longest-running policy disaster in the world: almost two centuries of prevarication and hopelessness."--Publisher description
