This is the latest addition to our ever growing and highly successful portfolio of railway atlases. At its core is a set of maps contrasting, on opposite pages, the Scottish railway network in 1920 and the same areas today. This graphically illustrates how the system has contracted over the course of the last 100 years and allows comparison between these two eras to be easily made.
However, there is so much more to this atlas than just the maps. For example, the Index of Stations has photographs of all those that are currently in use. For closed stations, each entry gives their OS Location, site status description and has a small map of the station. All stations in the Index have a chronology referring to the date of opening, closure dates for those no longer in use and any changes to their names that were made.
Other sections of the Atlas contain information on British Railways Scottish Region Motive Power Depots with closure dates and locations, preserved railway lines, major structures on the network, signal boxes and a listing of the Scottish railways companies which became constituents of the LMS and the LNER.
This excellent addition to our range of railway atlases will be very much welcomed by the many railway enthusiasts who have great interest in and affection for Scotland’s railways, their history and heritage.
