Format: Hardcover
Just recently got this book and think it is a comprehensive atlas to the Rail Network of Great Britain and Ireland. It shows everything you'd expect it to show such as:
Main Lines
Light Railways
Tramways
Miniature Railways
Private Railways
Freight Railways
Stations
Crossings
Depots
Sidings

Also includes the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Folkstone. As far as I can see it doesn't seem to contain any errors or omissions so recommend this to all rail enthusiasts. Other reviewers for this and many other Railway atlas's/diagrams say Bakers Maps aren't the best, I tend to disagree.

Using Mr Baker's excellent up to date Rail Atlas of Britain and Ireland one can find where all the different railway tracks run, and whether they be for all rail traffic or freifgt only. Proposed future developments are also dotted in. It would be nice to see them all come to fruition. On Page 26 there is an excellent inset showing the layout of the tracks to St Pancras and King's Cross stations ~ very useful when used in conjuction with an aerial photograph to figure out which line goes where! A very good buy!

I have bought this series of books for many years and have always found them invaluable when planning and travelling around the country either on the train or by car to photograph the railway scene and also as a way of reflecting on the changes that have occured to our railway system over the years.
Highly recommended reference book for anyone interested in our railway system.

The title of my review says it all - in fact, I bought it for a good friend who loves both maps and railways.
I have an earlier edition and was confident this one would be as good if not better.
He's thrilled to bits with it!

This Rail Atlas is the answer to all rail enthusiast's requirements. Should one have a set of timings for a charter or freight diagram, this Rail Atlas shows you where all the junctions are, and adds clarity to timings should a "Run-around" or "reversal" be required, it's all visable in the atlas.

I wanted an up-to-date rail map of the country and this seemed to fit the bill, an idea that was confirmed when it arrived. It was just what I wanted, an easy to follow guide in not too much unnecessary detail. I am very pleased with this book.

Been a Railway enthusiast for over 40 years plus in the Rail industry 25 of those, & resenty interested now in current Freight workings.
Helped by the freightmaster web site.
Never in the past had the book, which was first published in 1977.
this an up to date 2010 Edition.
For the currect UK rail network a must !
This book gives all the freight depot locations & stations which is a great help in working out movements & train paths.
Plus on doing small local Railrover (we did the Yorkshire day rover) the book is a great help.
Any one interested in Railway Frieght or planning days out by train its a great help.
Gives all passenger & clearly 'freight only' lines
Also good value from Amazon.
Thanks, Peter

This well established product has been steadily improved over the years. The area covered in terms of scale is about right and on the whole entires are clear, the only problem inevitably being in highly populated areas. Not all tunnels are named, for example Highertown Truro, and some abbreviations are not explained, such as 'Rugby SCC' (?). It must be a nightmare keeping up with freight terminal closures/openings/company changes but on the whole the author has used as up to date information as was available. Excellent value at Amazon prices! Overall '8 out of 10' from me and a most useful document to have on the shelf. Overall recommended.
