A safe mode of transport today, the railways were far from vehicles
of sleepy commute when they first came into service; indeed,
accidents were commonplace and sometimes were a result of something
far more sinister. In this fresh approach to railway history, Rosa
Matheson explores the grim and grisly railway past. These horrible
happenings include memorable disasters and accidents, the lack of
burial grounds for London's dead, leading to the 'Necropolis
Railway', the gruesome necessity of digging up the dead to
accommodate the railways and how the discovery of dynamite gave
rise to the 'Dynamite Wars' on the London Underground in the 1880s
and 1890s. Join Rosa as she treads carefully through the
fascinating gruesome history of Britain's railways.
