  • Descrição: The cultural geographer George Revill and the travel-writer and academic Tom Zoellner recently published studies - "Railway" and "Train" respectively - which, while dealing with the railway past, arguably one of the most researched facets of transport history, are not explicitly or only historical. Each text is immensely seductive - wonderful works of prose and synthesis, incidentally providing fine new entry points into railway history. In this article Gordon Pirie outlines the context of research and publishing in which they appeared and Revill and Zoellner offer commentaries on how they encountered "railway history", how they dealt with it, and how they regard it now.
