Armed with a 1936 edition of Bradshaw’s Handbook, Michael Portillo takes to the tracks to navigate the golden age of rail travel, when glamorous locomotives travelled at world-record speed through a discernibly modern era of mass consumption. As Art Deco cinemas and dance halls entertained millions, industrial Britain was thrown into unemployment and poverty as storm clouds gathered across the Channel.
