The North British Railway - a History


New paperback edition of David Ross’s very detailed history of Scotland’s largest railway company. The railway's rise from over-ambitious and under-funded beginnings, up to the Grouping is covered.

The NB’s lines extended from Cumberland and Berwickshire up to Aberdeen, and the Mallaig on the remote west coast. It was also responsible for both Tay Bridges, and the Forth Bridge. Its locomotive fleet, some of which lasted until the end of steam in Scotland, is also covered.

288 pages with around 160 contemporary B&W illustrations and numerous maps.
