There are many books on railway history, but few publications on how railways were constructed. Railway Builders tells the remarkable story of how the promoters, engineers and contractors worked together to build the national network.

These itinerant workers lived rough and were capable of immense feats of physical strength as they dug their way from one end of the country to the other

The rise & fall of British shipbuilding by Anthony Burton( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of how, from modest beginnings, Britain rose throughout the 19th century to become the greatest shipbuilding nation in the world. It begins with the age of sail, then moves on to the days of iron-hulled steamers. It shows how conflicts arose between the traditional shipwrights and the new men who came from the metal industries, leading to the infamous demarcation disputes. It is also the story of men like Brunel and Armstrong, geniuses who were always looking for change and development. It is also the story of decline in the 20th century
The railway empire by Anthony Burton( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The British were at the forefront of railway development for the first fifty years of the nineteenth century. [This book] tells the story of how the British gave railways to the world, not only in the empire, but also in countries outside areas of direct influence. It is often forgotten today that the British were responsible for the construction and management of a large proportion of the railways constructed in Africa, South America and Australasia not to mention many thousands of miles of mileage in Asia, India, Malaya, Burma, China and Japan. This book looks at the political, economic and technical aspects of this development, which made Britain a country at the forefront of this form of transport."--Book jacket
