Coming from a family with service on the railways dating back to the London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) and possibly even to the London & North Western Railway (LNWR), I could not resist including a chapter on railway history, with particular reference to Scotland and the Glasgow area.

It was this increasing demand for coal that drove Scotland into the canal age.

There were coalfields to the east of Glasgow in the Monklands, an area that included the Burghs of Airdrie and Coatbridge.

However, Edinburgh was still left out, so in order to provide a link, the Union Canal was built between 18, connecting Falkirk on the Forth & Clyde Canal with the capital city.

In due course, the rails were topped with a strip of iron and eventually fully cast iron rails were introduced, providing even greater strength.

Unfortunately, its heavy weight caused frequent breakages to the cast-iron rails so it only served for a trial period.

Before the railways really took hold, the prime means of transporting coal in bulk to growing cities and their industries was by canal.

In the course of repairing a model of Newcomen’s engine, he realized that a significant amount of energy was being wasted by repeatedly heating and cooling the cylinder.
