RH033 Parliamentary regulations for promoters of new lines

  • RH033  Parliamentary regulations for promoters of new lines

NEW FEBRUARY 2015.This comprises the first chapter from a book, the third edition of which was published in 1881. It was by John Wolfe Barry and was entitled 'Railway Appliances'.  It served as a textbook for serious students of railways.

The chapter summarises the regulations imposed by Parliament up to that date on new lines. It describes what needs to be submitted when seeking approval, including the scales of maps or sections.  It also specifies safe design of layout and structures (e.g. 'Platforms to be continuous and not less than 6 feet wide for stations of small traffic, nor less than 12 feet wide for important stations; and the descent at the ends of the platforms to be by ramps, and not by steps'.)
