The Origins of the Scottish Railway System 1722-1844

by C. J. A. Robertson - Find out more about the author

’a masterful piece of detailed research, backed up by acres of notes and tables showing working expenditure, engineering costs of inter-urban railways, etc.’
- Scots Magazine

Scottish nineteenth-century railways have suffered from a degree of neglect by economic historians; this study fills the gaps for the earliest period of Scottish railway history.

It covers the years from the first waggonway developments in the eighteenth century tothe advent of the railway mania of the 1840s and concentrates on the planning and formation of the various railways, the problems and achievements associated with their construction, and the financial record of the companies up to 1844.

One of the advantages of new technology is that it enables hard-to-find books to be made available again. We are pleased to present the first fruits of exploring John Donald’s classic backlist of academic titles. Not only do we hope to add more titles to the list but look forward to bringing in other titles suitable for this system as time goes on.
