    Robin Linsley has certainly put together an interesting selection of images from across the Britsh and overseas railway scene between 1860 and 1913, but I do have some reservations. Firstly I think there is too much emphasis on mishaps. Over 30 of the images cover accidents and derailments, with some accidents having 2 or 3 images of the same event. Secondly I am puzzled by the reproduction techniques used, with a number of the images looking as though the originals had been folded at some time. A number of images are clearly taken from glass plate negatives that are cracked. I appreciate that with rare and old material it has to be "taken as found", but I do wonder if there could have been some tidying up using modern techniques.Overall though a diverse and unusual selection, provided one remembers that it was not all "death and destruction" in those days!For me the best selection of images are those from the broad guage days of the Great Western.
