British Rail: The Nation's Railway by Tanya Jackson

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written, 28 Oct 2013
Certain other books on BR history have been almost overwhelmingly statistical. This is a fine balance - with a fresh style and excellent "business and social" elements , without going into the (often chartered) grounds of anti - Beeching hysteria. Highly reccomended (as an ex BR manager who lived through some of these times) - and the cover design is outstanding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough, 28 Oct 2013
Very well written (and researched) - probably the most definative account possible. (especially after nearly a century) - useful putting it into a political and wartime context.

4.0 out of 5 stars Survived..., 4 Sep 2011
My 17 year old son tested it with 6 days at Reading festival - it made the grade and is now safely tucked up for the winter. Good value.
