Railway Atlas Then and Now - 2nd Edition

Post  sbowness on Sun 12 Apr 2015, 9:46 pm

I don't know whether any of you use this book but you may be interested to know that a second edition is being released next month:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Railway-Atlas-Then-Now-Second/dp/0711038333/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1428871282&sr=1-6&keywords=railway+atlas

I have the first edition sitting on the desk when I'm driving as it helps me get an idea of where in the world I am, particularly as my British geography is a little broad and general (except for a North Notts and a little patch of West Yorks).

I'd also be interested to know what other books everyone uses when it comes to creating the routes and navigating them.

Thanks for the link Stephen, might treat myself to that one OK

Had a look so see if they were flogging off the first edition cheaply, when I saw what they wanted for it (anything from £50 to £1600+) I decided not to bother Dodgy

Hello Both,here's what I use.(I prefer the first)and you can pick it up 2nd hand for less than a fiver.

 

The second one I think was about £20 but does have everything included information wise.(as it says Proposed,Closed,Survived).
Still prefer the first one though! That is just my personal choice .     Regards.
Both available through Amazon

Hi

I use for locoomotives a Ian Allen Combined Volume for 1959,as it also has the shed allocations for each locomotive as well,other books a BR 1955 Eastern Region Summer Timetable,as it covers Kings Cross,Marylebone and Liverpool Street to all destinations,and for train formations Xtreme Publishing Operation Series books.

I find the best place to get them from is Amazon.UK
