Running day: Era 1 and Era 2 - Sunday 26th Feb

Our next running day is on Sunday 26th February and covers Era 1 and Era 2.

See classic stock from a period covering the start of the railways up until the "big 4" arrived.

ERA 1 (Pioneering) 1804-1869
Covering the period from Trevithick’s first locomotive-hauled railway journey, through the rapid expansion and ‘railway-mania’ of the mid-Victorian era railway network.

ERA 2 (Pre-Grouping) 1870-1922
A period of proliferation on Britain’s railways, as passenger numbers increased, the number of operating companies increased, and the system expanded to its zenith of 20,000 miles of track, but profits were falling, and regulation was required.
