The Britannia Tubular Bridge, designed by Robert Stephenson (1803 - 1859) and completed in 1850, was the Chester and Holyhead Railway's crossing of the Menai Straits to Anglesey and Holyhead, the main transit port for Ireland. The problem of the weight of multiple-carriage trains was solved by constructing rectangular iron tubes through which the trains would run. The limestone lions on either end of the bridge were carved by John Thomas.

Engraving, with very large margins. Plate 152 x 203mm. 6 x 8". Slight scuff into upper right-hand edge of plate.
The railway viaduct designed by William Cubitt for the South Eastern Railway (SER) near the port of Folkestone. The railway reached Folkestone in 1843. The company purchased the harbour, built a line down to the docks and began operating a steam ferry service to Boulogne where passengers could resume their journey on the continent. On arriving in France travellers had to switch to road transport, as the railways on the French side of the Channel did not reach the coast until the early 1860s. The coming of the railways to Folkestone considerably increased the town’s prosperity in the 19th century. Previously a quiet fishing port, Folkestone became a popular holiday resort as well as a gateway for travel to Europe.

The Lickey Incline, south of Birmingham, is still the steepest sustained main-line railway incline in Great Britain, with some trains still requiring the assistance of banking locomotives to ensure that the train reaches the top. When the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway was surveyed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1832 he suggested a route to the east; however his plans were too expensive and the job was given to Captain William Scarth Moorsom (1804-63), who was to be paid according to the savings he achieved. At the Lickey Hills in Worcester he was forced to built this steep incline, then found no British manufacturer could provide suitable locomotives. Therefore he ordered engines from the 'Norris Locomotive Works' of Philadelphia, designed by Septimus Norris (1818-62).

The viaduct at Corbett's Lane, in Bermondsey, south-east London, built as part of the London and Greenwich Railway, the first elevated railway, during the 1830s. The viaduct shown here is near Corbett's Lane junction, constructed in 1838-9 by the London and Croydon Railway so that its trains, which shared the viaducts running south-east from London Bridge, could diverge south towards New Cross. It was one of the first major railway junctions in the world.
