From Gridiron to Grassland: A History of Britain's Railway M


This book traces the development of the marshalling yard and examines British Railways' policy towards marshalling yards in light of the 1955 Modernisation Plan and afterwards. It then goes on to look at individual yards in detail. It is the result of over three decades of research by well-known railway author, Michael Rhodes. In the 28 years since his earlier work 'The Illustrated History of British Marshalling Yards' was published, numerous crucial documents have been released allowing a much more detailed understanding of the rise and fall of Britain's marshalling yards. In 288 pages with 500 photographs, 50 plans and 80,000 words, the author has put together a definitive history of Britain's marshalling yards to serve as an important and invaluable reference work. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in Britain's railways.
