How the Railway Works
By Dan Harvey.
Item code: HTRW.
Aimed at people with an interest in the railway, rather than professionals working in the industry, this accessible and readable guide from Ian Allen Books provides an invaluable introduction to all the different components of today's railways and how they work together to keep the railway in Britain operating smoothly.
It covers a wide range of topics such as the franchising system, the role of the different TOCs, passenger and freight, other operators on the network, who owns the railway infrastructure and how that is managed, the role of the government, Network Rail and statutory organisations, regional bodies involved in the railways, the rolling stock leasing companies, how ticketing and timetabling is managed, what happens in the event of an accident, together with details of how the workforce is run and managed.
