Ep. 2 - Full Steam Ahead

Full Steam Ahead

Historians Ruth Goodman, Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn visit Beamish in County Durham to examine how railway companies began to develop ways of moving people, rather than just stone, coal and iron, around Britain. The comfort of the early passenger wagons is put to the test on one of the earliest steam trains, and Ruth finds out how people were moving farther than ever before.
