The Dundee & Arbroath Railway (Lightmoor)

1 In Stock

The Dundee & Arbroath Railway, which opened for traffic in 1836, was the second of no fewer than four early railways in Tayside, three of which were based in Dundee.

Originally independent, it was acquired in turn by the Scottish North Eastern Railway and then the Caledonian Railway, before the opening of the Tay Bridge brought it into the joint ownership of the Caledonian Railway and the North British Railway. With the 1923 Grouping, the Dundee & Arbroath then became a joint LM&SR and L&NER line before eventually becoming part of British Railways (Scottish Region).

The line remains open today as part of the East Coast Main Line between London and Aberdeen. This book is the product of over forty years of research and includes around 250 illustrations, many not previously published, with a colour section, maps and signalling diagrams.

The genesis and construction of the original 5ft 6ins gauge line is described, followed by its subsequent history down to the present day. The book provides a comprehensive and well-illustrated history of the line, which remains an important part of Scotland's railway network today. Hardback. 224 pages.
