    As a former railway signalman of 43 years this was my opportunity to read about the legendary railway engineering brothers. I was not disappointed, it takes you through the trials and tribulations of the day and illustrates just how difficult life was then, let alone having to build a railway through inhospitable country and deal with at times, hostile people/5(24).
