Written by L.T.C. Rolt; Jack Simmons.
Stock no. 1827390
Published by Sutton Publishing. 1st thus 1998. Very good condition.

Railway disasters are almost always the result of human fallibility - a single mistake by an engine-driver, guard or signalman, or some lack of communication between them - and it is in the short distance between the trivial error and its terrible consequence that the drama of the railway accident lies. This book covers every major accident on British railways between 1840 land 1957 which resulted in a change in railway working practice, and reveals the evolution of safety devices and methods which came to make the British railway carriage one of the safest modes of transport in the world. Includes new introduction by railway historian Jack Simmons. Pictorial cardwraps. A few b/w photos. ISBN: 0750920475. Rear cover lightly scuffed. Top margins lightly crinkled by damp with some very faint staining else clean.
