The frenzy of railway building from the 1830s not only altered the physical landscape of Britain but also profoundly affected almost every aspect of national life, driving industrial growth and forcing rapid social change.This history looks at how the railways encouraged the building of suburbs and created the Victorian seaside resorts, but also examines less obvious consequences such as a growth in share ownership encouraged by speculation on the railways and the standardization of the time in Britain.
