From the earliest days the railway was an innovation which gripped the imaginations of artists in many countries. From the steely, smoky splendours of the locomotives, through the dramatic impact of the railways on the landscape, to the rapid and fundamental changes in the means and purposes of popular travel, the breadth of the subject and its appeal to the general public fascinated and encouraged some of the greatest painters and illustrators of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The pictures in Railway Art represent the cream of this work and are presented for the first time in a single collection.
