It also shows surveyors plans, proposals for lines which were never constructed, posters, timetable diagrams and signal box maps.

A number of SSC posters to this and other threads have been helpful in contributing to this compendium - you know who you are and I thank you for your contributions

They and anyone who's ever loved pouring over rail maps or even doodling their own will hopefully absolutely love this book!

Here's the front cover:

Here's a link to the publishers site:
http://us.penguingroup.com/nf/Book/B...d_Mark_Ovenden

And here to the pre-order page on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Railway-Maps-W.../dp/0670022659

It's available in hardback in America from end of April (British edition later this year)

I'll post some sneak preview page spreads soon just for SSC-ers!


Please accept my apologies for the shameless self-promotion, but we authors of specialist books need to be pro-active in this way!
Woooooooooooooooop!

HOW THE RAILWAYS SHAPED OUR WORLD

Thought you map lovers might like to see this nice juxtaposition about how the railways clearly helped open up the great landmasses thanks to the transcontinental railroads!

I wonder why they put a half of Portugal on that map of Spain but left the other half (places further from Spain) blank

And i thought that the Danish plans for the beginning of a HSR would be on, its a relative short line, meant to solve traffic congestion, but prepared for 250km/h. on completion its limited to 200 km/h. But that is probably unofficially because that the Danish DSB doesn't have trains that can go over 200, only a few German rented Velaro trains, and due to the European open rail network, 250 km/h would attract a foreign company offering lower travel times, with higher speed.
