1833: William IV, Victoria; the Railway Age; George Hudson

The industrial age is sweeping through England and the Stephensons are planning the greatest engineering scheme ever undertaken - a railway line from Liverpool to London. At Morland Place, Nicholas had hoped that his brother Benedict had been banished for ever. But railway fever brings Benedict back to York as an engineer on the Leeds & Selby line. When plans are formed to bring the railway to York, Nicholas not only fears his brother may steal his inheritance, but that the iron horse will destroy the very Morland lands. The conflict between the brothers mirrors the nation's battle between old and new.
