A four-part history of the railway

Now available: the fourth volume of the catalogue accompanying the exhibition about Germany's rail history. Together, the books form a comprehensive reference source and provide all kinds of fascinating facts covering 200 years.

The latest edition in this popular series was published to mark the opening of the new permanent exhibition, Next stop: the future – railways in Germany 1990-2020. It takes a close look at the upheavals following the collapse of communism in 1989 and, just like its predecessors, it is a treasure trove of fascinating information on the exhibits on display and topics covered.

The book represents the fourth and final volume in the series which traces the history of the railway in Germany epoch by epoch.

The other books

Everything started with Germany's first steam-powered trains and tracks, awestruck passengers and the incredible social and economic changes that accompanied the growth of the new mode of transport called "the railway". This volume takes a look at the era between 1835 and 1919 and is called Ein Jahrhundert unter Dampf ("A century of steam").

Within a short space of time, two devastating world wars tore Europe asunder, transforming technology and people's lives as they did so. Within a mere 25 years, the massive accompanying political and social changes also had a tremendous impact on transport. The second volume Im Dienst von Demokratie und Diktatur ("In the service of democracy and dictatorship") covers this period.

The third volume Auf getrennten Gleisen ("On separate tracks") describes how the rail system fared in a divided Germany from 1945 to 1989. As with the permanent exhibition of the same name, the book shows how innovations in rail technology are linked with social, political and cultural changes.
