A new and revised edition of the complete guide to Britain’s heritage railways. Contains up-to-date information about every standard gauge heritage railway in Great Britain.

More than 100 railways are listed, which together have restored and preserved hundreds of miles of railway lines and thousands of items of rolling stock. Each listing tells the railway’s own story and has useful visitor information, with details of interesting features and attractions at the site and nearby. Includes:

  • Contact details and website addresses
  • How to get there by public or private transport
  • Opening and operating times
  • Round trip journey times

For those who enjoy greater detail, there are accurate mileage figures and an up-to-date list of all main line locomotives, industrial locomotives and multiple units at each site – a total of over 2,000 vehicles. Includes the following for every locomotive or multiple unit:

  • Type
  • Number carried
  • Name (where carried)
  • Builder

The book is divided into eight geographical areas, each with its own map showing the location of each heritage railway. A final section contains details of proposed heritage lines that are in the process of being restored. A complete list of locomotive builders is also included.

Heritage railways now form a significant part of Britain’s tourism and leisure industry, each attracting tens or hundreds of thousands of annual visitors. This book introduces a vast variety of journeys which mingle history and charm in every corner of the country.
