22 Images Capturing the Magic of Trains

Themed Collections

25 September 2017

Posted by Leila Kozma

The very first train, the Diolkos was fabricated by the greeks circa 600 BC. The rather unrefined creation consisted men dragging larger, heftier items, such as boats, with a set of ropes. The first real transformation came about in 1804, when Richard Trevithick invented the locomotive. This was one of the key moments of the Industrial Revolution, allowing for the faster transportation of agricultural produce, materials and people. The locomotive hasn’t lost its charm in the contemporary era. It is still much beloved by train enthusiasts and history fanatics. These days, the nostalgia-fuelled can book scenic train journeys that aim to recreate the travelling experience from a bygone era. For those more inclined towards practicality, modern technology has seen the conception of a range of new-era transportation forms such as the Shanghai Maglev train that can reach up to 430km/h. Depending on what kind of journey one wishes to set out on, there’s a bounty of options to choose from. We've selected 22 images that capture the magic of trains from past and present.
