Crewe Works


Author Diane Drummond
Description Crewe, an archetypal railway town, was built on a green-field site by a railway company in 1842-3, and became a major junction, an administrative centre and an important manufacturing centre. It provides an ideal arena in which to study the relationship between company and people and the effects of this claustrophobic association on emerging economic and social structure and politics in the era of large-scale development and modernization in Europe and America.

  A Pictorial Tribute to Crewe Works in the Age of Steam
Author Edward Talbot
Description Throughout the steam age, Crewe Works was one of the leading, if not the leading, railway works in the UK. Indeed, in 1913 The Railway Magazine described it as ‘the most famous railway works in the world.’ In its heyday (particularly under the London & North Western Railway) it was world renowned for its manufacture and repair of locomotives and carriages, but this was only a part of its activities.
