Directory of British Railways - New and Reopened Stations 1948–2018 (Hardback)
Folllowing nationalisation in 1948, British railways closed many branch lines and reduced the number of stations on the network. In January 1978, there were 2,358 and by January 2018 there were 2,560 stations on the network. The object of this book is to record those stations that are re-opened or are new stations to the system. The book gives: locations, facilities, chronology, statistics and passenger usage.
Clearly a huge amount of research, travel and effort has been undertaken to compile the text, and to integrate it with appropriate photographs.Ffestiniog Railway Magazine
