Railfuture’s new book for 2017


An A-Z Guide of Station and Line Reopenings Sixth edition



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
