The London and Birmingham railway was completed by the autumn of 1838. Robert Stephenson (1803-1859) was the Chief Engineer. Many people opposed the route and forced Stephenson to move the line some distance from their towns. The 112 mile line took 20,000 men 5 years to build. From "The Land We Live In". (London, c1860).
