  • Railway Accidentsby Greg Morse

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 7.95

    Though trains are one of the safest forms of transport, train accidents always make headline news. Their history is, in many ways, the history of technological development and learning. Early incidents like the felling of William Huskisson MP by Stephenson's Rocket in 1830 led to the reporting systems we know today, while within 50 years safer signalling... more...

  • The Old Patagonian Expressby Paul Theroux

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2014; US$ 15.95

    Starting with a rush-hour subway ride to South Station in Boston to catch the Lake Shore Limited to Chicago, Theroux winds up on the poky, wandering Old Patagonian Express steam engine, which comes to a halt in a desolate land of cracked hills and thorn bushes.

  • Birdmen, Batmen, and Skyflyersby Michael Abrams

    Crown Publishing Group 2007; US$ 13.95

    The Wright Brothers were wimps.

People have been dying to fly, quite literally, since the dawn of history. They?ve made wings of feather and bone, leather... more...
