The world’s first passenger railway station opened in Manchester in September 1830, and the rest of the world soon began to copy the revolutionary new system. Amazingly that station still exists, as do several Bradshaws worth of adventures on the wheels of steel.

* Walk held in association with the Manchester Science Festival.
