D01.CD BR(E) Route Allocation Map

  • D01.CD BR(E) Route Allocation Map

This is a CD which contains our drawing D1, a copy of a map produced by British Railways in 1948 showing the route availability of locomotives over the whole of the Eastern Region. It extends from London to the south bank of the Humber, and depicts the ER lines across to Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool. There are enlarged inserts of the London and Manchester areas.

For a full list of the route availability number for each locomotive class, and for a description of which additional classes were allowed on specific lines, you will need file TW041 (the 1952 BR(E) timetabling compendium).

If your intention is to view the map on-screen and zoom in to perhaps 75% or 100% on a chosen area to see the detail, you can achieve that more cheaply by downloading file MP045.

The CD does contain this same file, marked as 'For home viewing'. The original drawing was approximately 26 inches by 29 inches, however, and the CD also has a second much larger version of the file labelled 'For professional printing'. If you wish for a full-size paper copy, you should take the CD to a local printer and request a print-out from that file: it will require a sheet of A0 paper, which may then be trimmed down to size. The map should then be at a scale of 1 inch to 8 miles.

If you place an order for this item, the CD will be posted to you. A charge to cover postage and packing is added at the checkout before you commit yourself to buy.
