RH031 British Railways in Peace and War 1944

NEW OCTOBER 2014.  Issued by the British Railways Press Office on behalf of GWR LMS LNER SR and London Transport in 1944.  It was "designed to give to the public a brief account of the work of the British railways in the fifth year of the war. But, the war apart, 1944 is an important year in railway history, for it marks the coming of age of the four main line railway companies. They were "born" on January 1, 1923, as the result of an Act of Parliament which created a peaceful revolution in the railway industry".

It contains a very large number of black and white photographs, plus a coloured two-page centrepiece. The book deals with developments in the inter-war period, gives an account of the railways and London buses in wartime, and offers a look forward to the post-war future.

The file is word-searchable and includes a full index, and we have provided detailed bookmarks to all the sub-sections.
