    Description: This book illustrates the changing face of rail freight in North West England over 40 years. During that time the traction and wagon fleets have been almost completely replaced, freight trains have become heavier and less frequent, the amount of shunting and trip working has been dramatically reduced, and most small freight terminals have closed. Perhaps the most striking loss has been freight from the oil and chemicals complex around Ellesmere Port and Stanlow and the former ICI complex around Northwich has lost almost all its rail traffic. On the Cumbrian coast, just nuclear traffic remains after the loss of coal, steel and chemicals traffic. However, not all the change has been negative: we now have biomass on rail, increased intermodal traffic and significant growth in stone traffic from the Buxton area. Illustrated with over 150 stunning photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, this volume looks at the evolution of rail freight in specific localities, detailing the changes in traction, rolling stock and railway infrastructure over four decades.

    Description: In the early 1980s, Ravenscraig steel works was the biggest source of rail freight north of the border, handling iron ore, coal, lime and scrap, as well as semi-finished and finished products. Opencast coal was thriving and would even lead to some lines re-opening later in the decade. Wagonload freight was still providing a service on some rural lines, not least the Far North line where many intermediate stations still handled general freight, such as seed potatoes and fertiliser. Today, Ravenscraig is a distant memory and coal is no longer carried by rail anywhere in Scotland. Wagonload freight has also disappeared, despite some attempts to revive the concept in the early 2000s. However, in a few areas, rail freight has done well. The cement works at Oxwellmains is a big user of rail and Grangemouth refinery still produces three trainload flows. Intermodal traffic has grown substantially, with several regular Anglo-Scottish flows on the West and East Coast main lines as well as internal movements to Aberdeen and Inverness. Illustrated with over 160 photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, this volume looks at the changing face of rail freight in Scotland. It details the changes in traction, rolling stock and railway infrastructure over four decades. Key Publishing Ltd Rail Freight: Scotland - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

    Description: Stephen Poole joined British Rail in 1973, working for three of its Regions and then for three of its Business Sectors in the run-up to privatisation. He experienced stations, depots, freight, parcels, yards, signalling, catering, major projects and business development. Using his extensive knowledge of the workings of British Rail, he paints a vivid picture of its inner life, set against the backdrop of political, industrial and social change that dominated the last twenty years of the nationalised railway. Inside British Rail is both a celebration of the determination and camaraderie shown by staff working in an industry that was struggling to survive, and a nuanced assessment of the difficulties, both internal and external, that contributed to its demise.

  • Key Publishing Ltd British Rail Shunters

    Price: £16.99

    Brand: Key Publishing Ltd

     

    Description: By the beginning of the 1980s, British Rail's fleet of diesel shunters was in decline, this being caused by a rapid loss of freight traffic across the country as well as the modernisation of passenger train operations, both resulting in a reduced need for shunting. Many of the smaller lower-powered classes had already been withdrawn or were teetering on the brink of extinction while even the ubiquitous Class 08s were increasingly feeling the pinch. While the number of shunters may have been reducing, this was in part balanced by the emergence of new looks as depots became increasingly interested in personalising their charges with names or colourful adornments. As the decade progressed and the hold of the corporate blue era gave way to Sectorisation, many colourful new liveries appeared on numerous shunters. This book examines this contrast in fortunes with photos of shunters at work and rest from across the UK during the 1980s, mostly in British Rail ownership but also including examples sold into industrial use.
