About the Author:

Author and photographer Julian Holland spent his formative years, notebook and camera in hand, trainspotting on draughty station platforms and in smoke-filled engine sheds and travelling the highways and byways of the British Railways' network in search of that elusive locomotive number. In his more recent years he has written many best selling books on railways including The Lost Joy of Railways, Amazing & Extraordinary Railway Facts, The Lost Lines of Britain and has co-written The Times Mapping the Railways.

Book Description DAVID CHARLES, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. With images of protests, last trains and the subsequent dereliction, Julian Holland presents a vivid picture of this dramatic and drastic shake-up of Britain s railways. Julian Holland s Dr Beeching s Axe 50 Years On is a unique memorial to all that was lost following the publication of the `Beeching Report on 27 March 1963. Across the land railways were ripped up and communities were broken apart. Vast regions of England, Scotland and Wales were left without a railway link to the outside world. Skilled railwaymen, who for generations had loyally given their all to the `company were tossed aside for the sake of a politically motivated love affair with road transport. There was never any joined up thinking (`Integrated transport? `What s that? ), it was never properly thought through and our country has suffered ever since - witness the near gridlock on our motorways. Uniquely, the author has tried to include every railway line that was closed as a result of the `Beeching Report , and more. They are all shown on Map 9 in Part 2 of the `Report and have been annotated for clarity at the beginning of each regional chapter in the book. Needless to say it is not plain sailing: there are lines that were marked for closure on the maps but were closed before publication of the `Report ; there are lines that were not originally on Beeching s original hit list but which were closed anyway; there are lines that were originally marked down for closure but which were fortunately reprieved. There are even one or two which seem to have not existed at all! The author has included them all. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781446302675
