Antique Collector - Vintage Vehicles & Transport


Railway Mania and the passion for speed.
By Vintage Transport most of us think of the golden age of steam, when railways ruled and train power became the biggest boost to national prosperity Britain had ever known. With a full backbone of the Victorian railway network in existence by about 1850, Britain entered a period of full mechanization with steam as the driving force behind the Industrial Revolution.

Much memorabilia has survived from the early days of steam, right up to the modern day diesels, probably because of the quality of construction and the prestige felt by those early railway staff.

From the toys we played with as children to the vehicles driven by our grandparents, nothing offers as much joy as owning a piece of the early years of transport and the thrill of speed that drove them on. In fact, one of the first things the early transport pioneers did, like, railway engineers, shipbuilders, aviators and car builders, was to race them beyond all endurance. From cars to car badges and from trains to cabin numbers, transport antiques has something to interest any collector.
