Nearly fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. This examination of BR's passenger services shows just how vital the organisation was. It successfully carried millions of commuters to and from their jobs every day; organised its trunk route services to yield a profit under the brand name 'Inter-City'; and pioneered world-beating research and technological development through its own research centre and engineering subsidiary. It transformed the railway system of Britain from a post-Second World War state of collapse to a modern, technologically advanced railway. This is a story of how all this was achieved against the odds. Black cloth boards, gilt title to spine. Colour & b/w photos.

A nice copy.
