Data provided for each location include:

  • Opening, closing and reopening dates

  • The original railway company and the company currently managing the station
  • Reference details to photographs of the same location published in the British Railways Past & Present series.
  • Comments on the frequency of the service, reasons for opening/reopening and other features as appropriate.

This fifth book in the series, by Terry Gough and Bob Avery, takes us to Scotland, covering all relevant stations and lines from the smallest halt to the major station developments and the popular new line reopenings.”
