At the core of the Scottish Railway Atlas Then and Now is a set of maps contrasting on opposite pages the Scottish railway network in 1920 and the same areas today. This unique display illustrates how the system has contracted over the course of the last 100 years and allows for easy comparison between these two eras. Along with the maps is an extensive index of stations including photographs of all those currently in use. For closed stations, each entry gives their OS location, site status description and a small map of the station. Other sections of the Atlas contain information on British Railways Scottish Region Motive Power Depots with closure dates and locations, preserved railway lines, major structures on the network, signal boxes and a listing of the Scottish railways companies which became constituents of the LMS and the LN&ER. This atlas will be welcomed by the many railway enthusiasts who have great interest in and affection for Scotland's railways, their history and heritage.
