novels describing early travel on canals, steamboats, trains

I have always enjoyed the beginning of C.S. Forester's "Hornblower and the Atropos" that describes Hornblower helping to leg a canal boat through the Sapperton Tunnel. Can anyone recommend novels that contain a significant description of early travel (within the first 20 years of development) by canal boat, steamboat, or train?
