In 1834 Robert Stephenson was mainly occupied with his work as an engineer of the London and Birmingham Railway but, as this diary shows, he had many other interests which made him a frequent traveller, by coach, to various parts of England. Reference to visits to Leicester in connection with the Leicester and Swannington Railway, to his firm Robert Stephenson and Company at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and to give evidence in Parliament on the Western Railway (i.e. G.W.R.) and the Brighton Railway are included.
