Transcript CHAPTER IX. HOW SHALL WE RE-ORGANISE OUR RAILWAYS ? A.—Railways in the 19th and 20th Centuries. 1. The 19th Century. " The nineteenth century, when it takes its place with the other centuries in the chronological charts of the future, will, if it needs a symbol, almost inevitably have as that symbol a steam engine running upon a railway. This period covers the first experiments, the first great developments, and the complete elaboration of that mode of transit, and the determination of nearly all the broad features of this century's history mav be traced directly or indirectly to that process.' <H. G. Wells.) 2. The 20th Century. Which shall it be ? This:—' ■ It is in their neglect of the possibilities of inland transport, however, that the history- student of to-day sees the gravest failure of those to whom was given the noble responsibility of rebuilding our country after the Great War, etc." Or this:—' By a statesmanlike handling of the railway system our forefathers were enabled not merely to make good the ravages of the Great War, but even to refashion the very lives of the people. In fine contrast with the practice of the previous era, the railways were now used in a hundred astute ways to develop both manufacture and agriculture, while cheap and swift trains, by distributing the myriads of stunted and thwarted town-dwellers over wide areas of country, at length gave to the people of England the homes that they desired."
