The 121 maps reproduced in this volume tell the story of the railways in Britain in a unique and visual way, from proposals and plans produced by the early pioneers to specially commissioned maps showing recent re-openings and newly built lines. Including passenger route planners from the height of the steam age and Beeching's controversial network revisions of the 1960s, the book charts two centuries of profound change and provides insights into both railway and cartographic history.
