KIRKUS REVIEW

Earnest, detailed pictures and prose show the architecture, construction techniques, inner workings, and staff of the great railway stations in England, Europe, and America during the railroads' heyday--from 1840 to 1920. Reminiscent, in its thoroughness, of Macaulay, but without the sparkle, and for a more limited audience. (Real train-buffs should seek out Huck Scarry's Aboard a Steam Locomotive, 1987.) Glossary, index.
