The Grand Junction Railway special edition will be printed onto high quality 120gsm heavyweight coated paper. The print is then permanently bonded between two sheets of resilient, flexible, crystal clear plastic, providing a virtually indestructible finish which will protect your map for many years to come. This attractive work shows the route between Birmingham and Liverpool, opened July 1837. The map is a section from Bradshaws Railway Map of 1839, it also features two wonderful views of Liverpool and Birmingham terminuses at Edge Hill and Vauxhall. The view at Edge Hill is from a very rare Ackerman engraving, busy with passengers. The print is wonderfully finished with an early steam engine and carriages that ran on that line, and the gradient profiles of both the Grand Junction railway and the Manchester - Liverpool railway that was used for the final journey to Liverpool. The product is delivered in a protective tube.
