Train travel retains a romanticism that is lost from much of modern life. A railway journey allows us to visit family and friends, it provides the opportunity to read and is a time to relax and reflect.
In Tate Exchange share your memories from railway journeys and look to the future as we explore the following questions:
Has the speed of railway development changed our understanding of a railway journey?
Does railway development reflect the power of a nation?
Does the power of economy represent the power of the people?
