British Railways Atlas 1947 and RCH Junction Diagrams
A wonderful new compilation comprising an updated edition of the 1947 Railway Atlas together with RCH Junction Diagrams
Originally published in 1948 as a permanent record of the British railway system as it was at the end of private ownership in December 1947, this atlas is a graphic reminder of the scale of the railway industry in the period before Nationalisation.
The second edition sees a major step forward for the title - all the maps have been redrawn digitally making them clearer to read and the format of the book has been increased to allow the maps to be recreated at a larger size, again allowing for easier reference. In addition, the RCH junction diagrams from the same era have been included in this new combined edition, and interspersed throughout the mapping pages as they relate to the areas covered.
Bigger, better, clearer and with much additional cartographic information, this perenially popular atlas has been given a new lease of life for modern readers.
