The Victorians and the Dawn of Railway Romance

Andrew Martin will explain how railways ceased to be disliked as bringers of soulless uniformity and began to be regarded with affection - a journey from Dombey and Son by Dickens to The Railway Children by E. Nesbit. He will also refer to the railways in his own books, including his recent novel, The Martian Girl: A London Mystery.
