Railfuture’s new book


An A-Z Guide of Station and Line Reopenings

Britain's Growing Railway tells the success story of railways in Britain. It shows how 400 stations have been opened (or reopened) since 1960, along with 600 miles of new track

The two stars of the Britain's Growing Railway are the new Borders Railway from Edinburgh to Tweedbank, and the soon-to-be-opened Crossrail (Elizabeth line) in London

One big change from the 2010 edition is the inclusion of passenger usage figures from the Office of Rail and Road for each of the reopened stations

This latest edition of Britain’s Growing Railway celebrates the success of many of Railfuture’s campaigns and points the way to the future

The 192-page A5 size perfect-bound book has 64 more pages but is the same price as the 2010 edition

Britain's Growing Railway is an essential tool for rail campaigners, giving construction costs, funders, and station specifications, with examples of stations and lines where patronage has far exceeded expectations

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and all members have an equal say.

Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.

Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.

Railfuture is the campaigning name of Railfuture Ltd.
