In early 1910, Cassierís Magazine produced a special issue dedicated to the railway industries of Europe and America. The issue paid special attention to:
- the high-speed locomotives of the day,
- river tunnel construction,
- strengthening of railroad bridges,
- signaling systems,
- shops and repair works,
- the state of coal and oil fuel supply systems,
- tramways and rack railways, and
- the development of electric locomotives.
The special issue celebrates advances in the century-old railway industry as the world slipped toward World War I. This collection of 15 articles by industry experts provides a contemporary view of rail technology at the close of the Victorian era. Hundreds of photographs and drawings illustrate the state of the industry's signal technology, civil works, and fabrication techniques, and show many of the locomotives then in use.
