British Rail was a success. British Rail is a contentious company,
as controversial as Dr Beeching and his axe. However, this
examination of BR's passenger services shows just how vital the
organisation was. It successfully carried millions of commuters to
and from their jobs every day; organised its trunk route services
to yield a profit under the brand name `Inter-City'; and pioneered
world-beating research and technological development through its
own research centre and engineering subsidiary. It transformed the
railway system of Britain from a post-Second World War state of
collapse into a modern, technologically advanced railway. And it
did all this despite being starved of cash and being subjected to
the whims of ever-fickle politicians. British Rail: The Nation's
Railway is a story, expertly weaved by Tanya Jackson, of how all
this was achieved against the odds. Complemented by stunning
black-and-white and colour images, this is certainly a volume that
no rail enthusiast should be without.
