Atlas of Railway Station Closures

3aeee3a6-1d43-4358-8498-6cb1af1ad8ab

This is a great and invaluable source of reference, though the title is slightly misleading because all stations currently open are also included. It’s a sort of updated (and much-improved) Gazetteer (which Ian Allan used to publish). The maps are easy-to-read and entirely comprehensive, with larger-scale ones for large urban areas. The work is supplemented by a photographic ‘Gallery’ section, which, though beautifully-reproduced, is rather depressing. There is an excellent Railway Companies’ index, and a huge index listing every British Station, those still extant in green. It’s a sad fact, that the black stations are very, very numerous. For any railway enthusiast, whether interested in the prototype or models, this book is a must for any bookshelf, if only to confirm how much has been lost forever.   

ISBN: 978 0 860936770. Price: £25.00
