Description
For enthusiasts of the age of steam, a fascinating comparative atlas which explores almost 100 years of history by placing railway maps, showing the railway network of Great Britain as it was on 1st January 1923, side-by-side with maps of 1st January 2020. Bringing alive the days of the ‘Big Four’, a new and fully revised edition of this hard-to-find atlas illustrates the extent of closures, re-openings and new land use across England, Scotland and Wales; plus the location of steam sheds, railway museums, tramways, cycle trails, commercial narrow gauge and miniature railways. With 45 colour maps (including enlargements for areas such as London, Liverpool and Glasgow) with informative legends. Also includes A-Z gazetteers with map references for 1923 and 2020 stations.
