First International Conference on Early Mainline Railways


The Conference will cover the pioneering period of the public main line railway, up to the establishment of a regular network of routes with agreed or amalgamated running rights. (this period extends from the opening of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway in 1830 to the major consolidation of companies which had taken place by about 1870; start/end dates will differ for other countries). The emphasis of the event will be on the formation, cultural impact and effects (financial, social, technical, etc.) of the early main lines in
all their aspects.
