The first volume of this comprehensive history of the Metropolitan District Railway. This volume looks at the company during the nineteenth century, including the formation of the company and at its aspirations to build railways, which proved to be more difficult than at first thought. Follows the effects of a banking crisis and the collapse of one of the railway's major contractors during construction. Also examines how a railway which was well used and provided useful services, found itself in such dire financial peril. Illustrated throughout with black & white photographs, maps and diagrams.
