The latest edition of the famous Baker Rail Atlas is now completely revised and updated to include all the latest developments and changes to the rail system in Great Britain and Ireland. To the railway enthusiast fraternity, Baker's Rail Atlas is “the Bible.” The book portrays the entire railway network of the British Isles, differentiating between passenger and freight lines, as well as between single and multitrack sections. The book also shows preserved lines, freight terminals, LRT schemes, passenger stations, lines under construction, proposed lines, and depots. This new edition reflects the developments in railway and LRT infrastructure due for completion by 2010 as well as those currently under development. These projects include all of the railway investment linked into the 2012 Olympic Games, continued expansion of the British West Coast main line, significant numbers of new railway stations, the completion of a number of projects in Scotland, and much more.

Although a great deal has been published on the economic, social and engineering history of nineteenth-century railways, the work of historical geographers has been much less conspicuous. This overview by David Turnock goes a long way towards restoring the balance. It details every important aspect of the railway’s influence on spatial distribution of economic and social change, providing a full account of the nineteenth-century geography of the British Isles seen in the context of the railway. The book reviews and explains the shape of the developing railway network, beginning with the pre-steam railways and connections between existing road and water communications and the new rail lines. The author also discusses the impact of the railways on the patterns of industrial, urban and rural change throughout the century. Throughout, the historical geography of Ireland is treated in equal detail to that of Great Britain.

Directory of the Railway Companies of Great Britain

I would like to make an acknowledgement here of Alan Jowett's excellent Railway Atlas of Great Britain and Ireland which has been invaluable. It is, I understand, out of print now but copies appear on Amazon and are worth chasing.

The Directory of British Railway Companies of Great Britain is a record of all the companies who sought to build a railway in Great Britain, both successful and unsuccessful. The Directory contains a full list of every company that obtained an Act of Parliament for the construction of a railway. If a railway was built without an Act of Parliament and played a part in the greater picture of Great Britain’s railway system, it is also included, which gives a fascinating glimpse into Great Britain’s colourful public transportation history. Readers will learn about each railway’s origin, opening, route, gauge and growth and its amalgamation with others, and find out which grouping company it finally ended up in. In an interesting additional section, the routes that unfinished railways and railways that never came to fruition would have taken are also included. The Directory of British Railway Companies of Great Britain has been meticulously researched, and as a result includes all railways, built or not, in the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and Scottish Islands. Also included are brief descriptions of the most pertinent Acts relating to railways in Great Britain, providing readers with an insight into the complicated legal processes involved in the creation of a railway. The Directory of British Railway Companies of Great Britain is an all-in-one, easy to access and invaluable reference source. It will appeal to historians and transportation enthusiasts alike, as well as those who have always wondered how Great Britain’s railways came to be.

There are just a few books published which need no real introduction. Mention the word Wisden and every cricket enthusiast will know precisely what is being discussed. Similarly, the antique collector will react instantly to the name Lyle. In railway publishing, there is only one title that has this instant recognition. Mention Baker to anyone with a knowledge of the subject, from railway industry professionals to railway enthusiasts, and immediately they will know what is being referred to. Since it was first published in 1977, Stuart Baker's Rail Atlas Great Britain and Ireland has established itself as one of the must-have books on the subject of the contemporary railway industry. Now into its 11th edition, several past editions have also been reprinted, the book is undoubtedly one of the best-selling railway titles of all time. The tenth edition of the book was published in 2004 and in the three years since that edition was compiled, much has happened to the railway infrastructure of the British Isles. The final section of the Channel Tunnel rail link, taking Eurostar services into the rebuilt St Pancras station, is due to open at around the time the book is published. Elsewhere, there are exciting developments to record in Scotland with work in progress on the reopening of the line through Alloa and south of Edinburgh, the reinstatement of part of the long-closed Waverley route. In Wales, positive developments to record include the restoration of passenger services to the Ebbw Vale line and in England a number of new stations and facilities, representing a considerable investment by the various branches of the railway industry, are also recorded for the first time. Away from the national network the preservation movement continues to expand, with a number of extensions to existing lines to record as well as a some newly developed schemes. As always, the book covers the current railway network of both Great Britain and the whole of Ireland. In the 30 years since the Rail Atlas Great Britain and Ireland was first published, the book has become an accepted, widely respected and indispensable guide and work of reference for all interested in the railways of the British Isles, railway professionals and enthusiasts alike. This new and fully revised 11th edition is certain to sell as well as previous editions and will be sought by a large number of customers on publication.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, Scotland was an excellent destination for the railway enthusiast. The many locomotive hauled trains running through splendid scenery, together with the surviving railway infrastructure and mechanical signaling, provided many fine photographic opportunities. My first railway visit to Scotland was on board The Fair Maid rail tour to Perth, behind Flying Scotsman in 1983. The following year, I again traveled to Scotland, this time on the F & W Railtours The Skirl O' The Pipes 4, to Kyle of Lochalsh and Mallaig, my first visit to the Scottish Highlands. I had previously been traveling abroad for railways, but impressed by what I saw, I decided that I would quickly return to photograph the Scottish railway scene, before it changed too much. This was the start of a series of visits, each for one or two weeks, between 1984 and June 1991, covering the whole country. This book is a photographic record of the locomotives, trains and infrastructure of the railways of Scotland and the landscapes through which the trains ran, as recorded by my various cameras during the period of my visits.

Michael Williams has spent the past year travelling along the fascinating rail byways of Britain for this new collection of journeys. Here is the 'train to the end of the world' running for more than four splendid hours through lake, loch and moorland from Inverness to Wick, the most northerly town in Britain. He discovers a perfect country branch line in London's commuterland, and travels on one of the slowest services in the land along the shores of the lovely Dovey estuary to the far west of Wales. He takes the stopping train across the Pennines on a line with so few services that its glorious scenery is a secret known only to the regulars. Here, too, is the Bittern Line in Norfolk and the Tarka Line in North Devon as well as the little branch line to the fishing port of Looe in Cornwall, rescued from closure in the 1960s and now celebrating its 150th anniversary taking families on holiday to the seaside. From the most luxurious and historic - aboard the Orient Express - to the most futuristic - on the driverless trains of London's Docklands Light Railway - here is a unique travel companion celebrating the treasures of our railway heritage from one of Britain's most knowledgeable railway writers.
