In 1948 British Rail came into being and with it a new era in railway history. The glory days of steam were numbered and when railway photographers like author Wrenford Thatcher were eagerly snapping their favorite locomotives in the 1950s and 1960s, British Rail were busily introducing many diverse diesel locomotive designs as part of the program to eliminate steam traction. Wrenford Thatcher’s collection of evocative photographs is divided into eastern, southern, western, and midland regions, revealing the changes occurring on the London railways in the post-war years. From Euston and Paddington right out to the suburbs all around London, these stunning, previously unpublished images beautifully record the last great days of steam.
This is the first history of the British railway system written from a modern economic perspective. It uses conterfactual analysis to construct an alternative network to represent the most efficient alternative rail network that could have been constructed given what was known at the time - the first time this has been done.

The Directory of British Railway Companies of Great Britain is a record of all the companies who sought to build a railway in Great Britain, both successful and unsuccessful. The Directory contains a full list of every company that obtained an Act of Parliament for the construction of a railway. If a railway was built without an Act of Parliament and played a part in the greater picture of Great Britain’s railway system, it is also included, which gives a fascinating glimpse into Great Britain’s colourful public transportation history. Readers will learn about each railway’s origin, opening, route, gauge and growth and its amalgamation with others, and find out which grouping company it finally ended up in. In an interesting additional section, the routes that unfinished railways and railways that never came to fruition would have taken are also included. The Directory of British Railway Companies of Great Britain has been meticulously researched, and as a result includes all railways, built or not, in the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and Scottish Islands. Also included are brief descriptions of the most pertinent Acts relating to railways in Great Britain, providing readers with an insight into the complicated legal processes involved in the creation of a railway. The Directory of British Railway Companies of Great Britain is an all-in-one, easy to access and invaluable reference source. It will appeal to historians and transportation enthusiasts alike, as well as those who have always wondered how Great Britain’s railways came to be.
