Rail Atlas of Great Britain and Ireland,

    By

    The OPC Rail Atlas of Great Britain and Ireland was first published in 1977 and has, over the years, proved itself to be one of the most successful railway titles ever published. The book portrays the railway network on the British Isles, differentiating between passenger and freight lines, as well as between single and multi-track sections. It also shows preserved lines, freight terminals, LRT schemes, passenger stations, lines under construction, proposed lines, depots, etc. As such the book is an essential work of reference for both enthusiasts and professionals. This new edition is fully updated to reflect the developments in railway and LRT infrastructure due for completion by 2015 as well as those schemes currently under development. The new edition retains the convenient format established by the atlas but has several significant enhancements. The mapping on each page overlaps with the mapping on adjoining pages to make it easier to follow a long-distance route. Where appropriate, additional detailed inset maps have been drawn to show the complex railway developments in metropolitan areas such as Nottingham and Manchester.The size of the type in the index has been enlarged to make it more readable. The sequence of maps has also been reorganised where possible to make it easier to follow a route. The extent has been increased by an extra 8 pages to allow for these changes.
