With new transportation technology came a slew of new legal issues. This book discusses Great Britain's rail laws as of 1903. It presents some cases that set precedents and discusses many angles of train law, including who can make tramways, how they go about legally doing so and the legalities of construction. Then, the book turns to the up-and-running railway to discuss buying tickets, levying tolls, passenger offenses, rail employee offenses and the power of the military over tramways.
