11 Thompson, Benjamin. Plan and Section of an Intended Iron Railway or Tram Road from the Town and Country of Newcastle upon Tyne to the Canal Basin near the City of Carlisle in the County of Cumberland with Certain Branches Therfrom.
[Newcastle], 1825. 
Copper engraving, 10 x 71 ins., handcolored. Fine, rolled scroll-fashion. The first map of the first railway to cross Britain, and eventually the third to be built (after Stockton-Darlington, in 1825 and Liverpool-Manchester in 1830). One of a handful of copies produced for promotional and legal purposes. The map depicts the course of the tramway from Newcastle to Carlisle, marking district boundaries, land plots and principal buildings. Benjamin Thompson, a mining railway engineer and mine owner, became involved and produced this the first railway survey for the line in 1825. Due to problems with errors on the levels and difficulties with certain landowners, construction of the troute did not begin until March 1830.
