This album provides a unique colour record of 71 photographs and Ordnance Survey Maps, which the author (who was a Conservative MP and railway enthusiast) has used to illustrate the changing pattern of the British railway systems throughout the years. The book is not just about locomotives and rolling stock, it also describes the way in which railways grew and, in many cases, then faded away.
