The five years either side of the millennium was a period of great change on the railway network with the advent of privatisation and, on the passenger side, the introduction of franchised operations. On the freight side, the original British Railways network was initially split into three companies, Mainline, Loadhall and Transrail, but they all ended up being purchased by EWS, the English, Welsh and Scottish Railway. The period saw new rolling stock, new locomotives and a staggering number of different liveries. This book records some of the many changes, to capture the last days of some of the older classes before they were phased out and equally, to include the new. The railways of Central Scotland in 2005 had transformed almost beyond recognition when compared with how things had been ten years earlier. While it cannot capture everything in this period, Ian Lothian illustrates the main route network in Central Scotland and provides an interpretation as to how things were and how they have changed.
