101 Railway Stations - A Journey of Variety

Sale price £19.00 Regular price £25.00

In 1948 British Railway passenger trains called at just under 7,000 railway stations. Today that number has been reduced to around 2,500. Despite the substantial cuts to the size of the national network and the number of stations over the last 70 years, a remarkable variety of stations still exist. These range from some of the great city centre termini, which in their scale and grandeur can be viewed as the Victorian equivalent of medieval cathedrals, to stations serving small towns and remote country halts.

The author has selected 101 examples of the most interesting stations from across the network to show the diversity that still exists among Britain’s stations. The history of each of these is recounted, as is that which makes it special. There are illustrations of stations both historic and contemporary, and also included are modern interpretations of what a railway station should look like.

This book is an affectionate and absorbing reflection on a key, but often overlooked, part of British society from the nineteenth century through to the twenty first that will delight not just railway enthusiasts but also those with a wider interest in our history and heritage.

Hardback, 176 pages, black & white and colour illustrations, maps
