In addition to the fascinating lists of longest tunnels, widest bridges and most powerful locomotives, ponder the dismal failure of Brunel's atmospheric railway in South Devon, before reading the rags-to riches tale of Frank Hornby.
From the sublime to the ridiculous and the euphoric to the poignant, every railway enthusiast is catered for.
