            Railways have played an immense part in the history of New South Wales. The parallel lines extended as the population grew and themselves made possible new settlement and new industries. Railways crossed the mountain barriers that surround Sydney and opened up both the vast hinte...rland and the northern and southern coasts. Railways joined every part of New South Wales to Sydney in a distinctive, centralized pattern. They also joined New South Wales to the neighbouring colonies and states.

            The book, first published in 1977, contrasts new and older approaches to the history of transport and outlines a critical exposition of the methods used to quantify the contribution of railways to economic growth by means of counterfactual speculation and the measurement of socia...l savings. The author also outlines and appraises an alternative measure of the impact of railways, namely the social rate of return on capital invested in railways. The final chapters are concerned with the effects on growth generated by the construction and diffusion of railways through expenditure on labour, capital goods and industrial inputs and through their effects on the integration of markets, and patterns of location.
