Synopsis: World of Trains ranges over many aspects of this absorbing subject, from the glories of main-line steam to the universal model railway hobby.
It recalls steam in its heydey and in its twilight years, and looks at the role of railways in modern transport. Associated subjects with strong hobby interests, such as tickets and postage stamps, model and miniature railways, preserved lines and museums, are also discussed.
