The atlas is showcased in a wonderful presentation sleeve that gives this spectacular creation the prestige it deserves. A must have for anyone with an interest in the history and economy of Great Britain throughout the years as viewed through an expansive rail network.
Explore and immerse yourself in the accuracy of this atlas which is a testament to the phenomenal dedication and research which Colonel Michael H Cobb invested into this project. The Third Edition should serve as the definitive reference point to any historical research into the great railways of Great Britain for any enthusiast, historian and professional.
The railways are shown in the broader context of the geographical features of the area they traverse, such as roads, canals, mountains and woodland. We have all glimpsed a disused railway from a train or car and perhaps wondered what line it was. The Atlas will answer such questions immediately.
