Instructions for Smooth Reading

If you like finding clever solutions to challenging mechanical problems, you will love this book. It describes and illustrates (with over 120 photos) how engineers in the 19th and early 20th Centuries found ingenious ways to route railways through and across difficult to apparently-impossible terrain and waterways.

No footnotes, a good but simple Index, and those great photos.

There didn't seem to be many page references (links), but if you find any that aren't linked in the HTML versions, please let me know.

If any captions, particularly credit and "See page" lines just below the photos, are badly aligned (other than as a result of wrapping on narrow screens), please let me know about them, too. There's one illustration with captions above and below the four photos within it, and they had to be positioned differently from all of the others.

Hope you will enjoy reading this; I know I will. And thanks for your help.

P.S. Because there are so many photos, the .epub file is 25MB and the .mobi is 81MB. If you're on a slow internet connection, as I am, please be patient if you download either of those.
