In Conversation with... Ep 3: Rob Langham

Updated: Dec 5, 2020

Hi everyone! We hope you're all well. In the third edition of our podcast series we speak to Rob Langham. Rob is a historian specialising in the railways of the north east (a subject particularly close to my heart), and has recently written a book on the Stanhope and Tyne Railway which is due for this month.


We sat down and chatted about all things railways! Why did the Stanhope and Tyne need different modes of power? Why was the north east such fertile ground for railways, and what fostered his love of the iron rail?



'The Stanhope & Tyne Railroad Company' is due for release on the 15th November, and you can pre order the book from Amberley Books here.
