MORE OLD UK

OK here's some more that I've recently found - they were in a set of postcards I bought on ebay!

Love this one of the English Lake District and notes from some of Britains poets:

Lovely rail poster with map in background extolling the virues of Scotiish Golfing:
image hosted on flickr


Another Scottish one, this time a pure rail map:
image hosted on flickr


And finally here's sunny Llandudo - not so much as a rail map but a nice poster map of the town:
image hosted on flickr


Not from the same postcard collection but nonetheless fascinating, this shows the location of Prudential Insurance offices superimposed on a map of UK railways - dates from about 1901:

So any attempts at beautiful pictorial maps promoting your country/region? I know there were loads made in France, Spain and Italy...what have you got stored up to show the world??

The Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) in 1893. The PRR was one of the richest railroads in the world at the time, and effectively controled Pennsylvania (due to its copious bribery of the politicians).


The Pennsy's archrival, the Reading, in 1923. Note the importance of the Pocono anthracite grounds for the railroad's prosperity. When the Northeast Extension was built to Scranton, offering an alternate access to the Poconos, the Reading Railroad lost its main source of income and slowly died over the next couple of decades.

This is the map of the belgian passenger rail system, with the position of
all passenger trains in quasi-real time.

Cool, eh ?

Yeah that is really smart! Graphics are a bit shite but then many online maps lack the beauty of printed ones. I wonder if this is the way forward in transit mapping though - lets hope they can better mix the aesthetics of printed maps to on screen ones while adding real-time info!

Any other examples as smart as the Belgian version ???

The Australian network as it stands today. A few of these train journeys go for days and days, crossing the continent, passing through deserts and bush.


http://www.railmaps.com.au

Victoria's V/line rail network (similar to a national railway with frequent trains connecting cities, but operating only in Victoria as our states are kinda like separate countries).

Nice one CityThing (b.t.w.: who is the CampOne??!! I think we should be told)

Yeah I love the maps on http://www.railmaps.com.au they are so well made. Not the official ones of course, but that guy/gal does make some very fine offering, bless 'em

So what of your country? Is there a 'before and after' map to compare how your railways suffered in the last half of the 20th Century??
You just think there was a big reduction in Britain, while actually if you compare to what happened in Brazil you are still quite well off.

Passenger railways around 1980:



Non-urban Passenger railways in 2000 (It's just the two green lines, the other ones I couldn't take off the map):



And consider that the northern line goes to the middle of nowhere, so it's actually only 1 useful line.

In fact, I dare to say no country in the world has suffered such a huge cut in passenger rail like Brazil. Even Argentina and USA which also lost most lines were left with more lines.

edit: Now I remember that Mexico also suffered a comparable cut.
