The Modernisation Plan - British Railway's Blueprint for the Future
By David N Clough.
Item code: MOD.
Brand new book (published November 2014 with 160 pages) on The British Railway's Modernisation Plan of 1955./p>
Written by renowned historian David N Clough to mark the 60th anniversary of the British Railways Modernisation Plan of 1955, this brand new hardback book from Ian Allen Publishing draws on original research from the official files of the National Archives. It contains 192 pages including 24 b&w photos from the era.
Very little has been written about the Modernisation Plan process itself, so this detailed analysis fills a gap in the literature and tells the story of how the modernisation was undertaken, set against the backdrop of Britain in the 1950s and 1960s.
His previous book, from 2013, entitled "Dr Beeching's Remedy : A cure for a century of the railway's ills" is also still available to buy from Railfuture.
