Modern Railways Dictionary of Railway Industrial Terms

Sale price £16.00 Regular price £19.99
The Modern Railways Dictionary of Railway Industry Terms is an essential guide to the complex world of the modern railway scene. Today's privatised railway industry has created for itself a whole new range of jargon to be added to that already in use in an industry whose history now spans two centuries." "In this book the reader is guided through the terminology that is in present use, reflecting the new railway structures that have replaced the old. The organisation of the railway itself is explained and its relationship with other bodies. This includes the Department for Transport and Network Rail as well as crucial areas such as the responsibility for safety and the funding arrangements for the Passenger Transport Executives." "While much of the book is arranged alphabetically, there are a number of topics - from the legal position to signalling, passenger services to rolling stock and so on - organised thematically.
