Mile By Mile

Faithfully reproducing S.N. Pike’s hand-drawn and forensically detailed railway maps from his 1947-48 ‘Mile by Mile’ pamphlets for the LNER, LMSR and Southern Railway; plus a sympathetically researched addition of maps for the GWR also. Journey across Britain’s main-line railways on the eve of nationalisation; the views from the carriage windows are conveyed through finely detailed, hand-drawn maps, highlighting sights of historical and commercial interest, geographical features, railway infrastructure, gradients and mileages. Speed along the LNER’s racing track from King’s Cross to Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh; from next-door St Pancras through the Peak District to Manchester; from Waterloo to Plymouth (with some pleasant seaside diversions on the way); from Euston through the industrial heartlands of the West Midlands and the north-west to the seaport of Liverpool; and from Paddington along Brunel’s ‘bowling green’ railway to Bristol, Exeter and Penzance. With introductions setting the Big Four in context.

Hardback, 173 pages, 108 maps, 19 black and white and 16 colour illustrations.
10¼” x 7½”.
