Discover over 50 of the greatest scenic railway routes in England, Scotland and Wales, from the authors of the highly acclaimed publication 'The Times Mapping the Railways'. Explore the hidden treasures of Britain's rail network and its fascinating heritage railways. Detailed text on history, geography and present-day operations is complemented by stunning Bartholomew historical mapping and a selection of high-quality photographs. These are supported by railway memorabilia and extracts from gradient profiles and track diagrams to illustrate the passage of the railways through the diverse landscapes of Britain. In addition to selected routes on the main rail network, the best heritage railways, narrow-gauge and miniature lines are also featured. Lines featured include: * The route of the classic Cornish Riviera Express, along the coast and across steep-sided river valleys to Penzance. * The unique landscape of Romney Marsh and its eccentric seaside bungalows, served by the miniature express trains of the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway. * Two classic narrow-gauge lines through stunning North Wales mountain country - the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways. * Across and through the Pennines via the Settle & Carlisle Line, the last main line railway in England constructed almost entirely by hand. * The West Highland Line from Glasgow, by romantic Loch Lomond and lonely Rannoch Moor, to the foothills of Ben Nevis at Fort William. A unique insight into the most scenic journeys in England, Scotland and Wales, Britain's Scenic Railways fills a long-standing gap in the portrayal of our rail network. It is the ideal armchair guide to the very best of British rail travel.
