 As of the publication date of, Railways Of The World, there were more than 3/4 of a million miles of railways blanketing the continents.  From a historical perspective, railroads have opened up continents, created trade routes and provided national and intercontinental transportation services on a scale never before seen.  By the late 1970s, more than seventy percent of the world's freight was carried by rails.  "Railways Of The World" takes the reader through the countries of the world, along narrow gauge, meter-gauge and standard gauge tracks, over bridges and viaducts, through tunnels, across deserts and up the sides of mountains.  "Railways Of The World" reviews the history and modern workings of urban rapid transit systems, as well as, national and international railroad systems.  The relevant statistics of the rail systems reviewed include gauges, lengths, and heights of bridges and tunnels, passengers and freight carried, rolling stock, locomotive power and percent electrified.  The major sections of "Railways Of The World" are as follows: 1) Preface; 2) Introduction; 3) Europe; 4) North America; 5) Central and South America; 6) Africa; 7) Middle East; 8) Asia; 9) Australia and Oceania; 10) Index and 11) Acknowledgements.  In addition to an informative narrative, "Railways Of The World" includes maps obtained from the cartographers, George Philip & Son Limited, London, as well as, more than 600 black & white and color photographs.  "Railways Of The World" is highly recommended for both railroad enthusiasts and "armchair" historians alike.  This book is 350 pages and is in very good condition.  The author is Brian Hollingsworth.  Edition published in 1979.
