9780747812548: The Country Railway (Shire Library)

While the coming of the railways to Britain's towns and cities in the nineteenth century transformed their fortunes and gave urban dwellers new opportunities to travel across the country, the effect on the largely rural population of the country was arguably far greater. And while some of the initial trunk lines were designed to link major cities, the network of smaller cross-country and branch lines that followed opened up large tracts of previously remote countryside, providing new markets for agricultural produce but also ending the isolation of many rural communities. For many railway enthusiasts, the country railway was typified by the shorter but no less important branch line. Many of these railways began life as independent companies promoted by local people wishing to ensure their community was linked to the main line, but inevitably they were often taken over by large operations like the Great Western, but inevitably remained an important part of the districts and communities they served.

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Britain s towns and cities were famously transformed in the nineteenth century by the coming of the railways, which turned around their fortunes and gave urban dwellers new opportunities to travel across the country. Yet the effect on the rural population was arguably far greater. While some of the initial trunk lines were designed to link major cities, the network of smaller cross-country and branch lines that followed opened up large tracts of previously remote countryside, providing new markets for agricultural produce and ending the isolation of many rural communities. Such was the pace of development during the Railway Mania period in fact, that by the end of the nineteenth century there were few areas of country not served by train. This book tells the story of these country railways from their golden age to their decline in the wake of nationalisation and the Beeching Report in the mid-twentieth century - and indeed current efforts to restore and preserve them.
