The Great Railway Conspiracy (Last Copies)

This product is currently sold out.

Third, and much updated, edition of a book first published in 1991. Then it was a tale of how, since 1947, successive governments mangled the British railway system in a process which was largely completed just as the Arab oil embargo changed the transport agenda overnight.

Now Britain's railways are busier than ever, lines and stations are reopening and brand new high speed lines are being planned. The complete story is told in this excellent and exceptional value book.

304 pages. Profusely illustrated, mainly in colour. Numerous maps and graphs. Paperback.
