Britain's Heritage Railways

Regular price £19.95

Andy Chard's book contains up-to-date information on every standard gauge heritage railway in Great Britain. More than 100 railways are listed which, together have restored and preserved hundreds of miles of railway lines and thousands of items of rolling stock. Each listing tells the railway's own story and has useful visitor information, with details of interesting features and attractions at the site and nearby. For those who enjoy greater detail, there are accurate mileage figures and an up-to-date list of all main line and industrial locomotives and multiple units art each site - a total of over 2,000 vehicles.

The railway's history and details of all future extension plans compliment the numerical data. Heritage railways now form a significant part of Britains' tourism and leisure industry, each attracting tens or hundreds of thousands of annual visitors. This book introduces a vast variety of journeys which mingle history and charm in every corner of the country.

Softback, 192 pages, well illustrated with colour photographs.

ISBN: 9781909431287
