Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

The Beeching Report of 1963 was a turning point in the history of British railways, decimating the system by mothballing 15,000 miles of track and a third of all stations. This book puts a positive spin on the seismic changes, examining the many heritage railway lines, walking paths and cycle trails on disused routes and the preserved locomotives, stock, signals and signs that would not have survived without the impetus provided by the Beeching closures.
