Railway Atlas - Then & Now (3rd Edition)

Railway Atlas - Then & Now (3rd Edition)

Regular price £20.00

This is a new, revised and fully updated edition of one of our most popular railway atlases. The key to the attraction of this atlas is the ease with which it enables comparisons to be made between today’s railway network and that which existed in 1923.

The book includes 45 maps from each period alongside a detailed gazetteer and brief introduction. The contemporary maps have all been revised and updated for this new edition. They include information about railway lines that have been closed and converted for other purposes such as walking or cycling routes, or have found a new use as heritage lines, tramway conversions and the like. Other information includes the location of all post-1923 steam sheds and current diesel and electric depots, railway museums and a wide range of modern commercial narrow gauge and miniature railways.

The Atlas also provides a list of all stations that have both been opened and closed between the 1923 and the present day as well as those currently under construction.

The new edition of this unique publication can be used either for pleasurable browsing or as an aide for more detailed research into how the railway network has changed over a period of close to 100 years.

Hardback, 112 pages, 45 pairs if "Then & Now" maps, black & white and colour photographs

ISBN: 9780860936985

When placing your order, please ensure that you add the correct full shipping address to your order. This includes house number, street name, zip code/post code. If parcels are returned on account of an incorrect shipping address we will contact you to seek the correct address and also ask that you pay a contribution towards posting the parcel to you a second time. 


All orders over £20.00 are post free to all UK addresses. For orders of £20 or less, a £1.50 postage fee will be added. These are normally sent via Royal Mail 48 Hour (the business equivalent of 2nd class mail) which is not tracked. If you require tracking for your, tracking options are available for a small fee. If the service that you require is not shown, please get in touch with us and we can quote for your desired service.

Large, bulky or high value orders may be split in to multiple consignments or sent via courier. There is no additional charge for this and you will be advised at the order fulfillment stage if this happens.


Overseas orders are charged based on weight, and postage will be automatically calculated at checkout. For a postage quotation, please add the items you want to your cart and proceed to the checkout. All orders are usually sent via Air Mail - this is not tracked. If you required your order to be tracked or sent by a different service, please contact us, preferably before checkout.

Royal Mail will only accept parcels up to 5kg in weight (2kg for Canada). If you are ordering multiple items that exceed these limits, please contact us first so that we can advise you of the appropriate shipping rate.

Due to the high volume of parcels going missing, we are no longer able to send untracked orders via third party mail handling services such as Parcel Motel. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.

Some countries charge import taxes and we suggest that in these cases, you asked for your order to be tracked so the local taxation authorities can trace your parcel.

Please note that courier services are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses. If you usually use a PO Box address, you will need to supply an alternative address if you require shipping by courier.
