Section 049: Railways Restored.
'Railways Restored' first appeared in 1980, produced in conjunction with 'Railway World' magazine. A useful book, listing all preserved lines, railway centre, and museums, complete with details of locomotives and units to be found at each site (at the time of publication). The first seven were stapled, the rest were block-bound publications, which were all 9 1/4" x 7", with the exception of the Special Preserved Locomotives edition of 1992, which was 9 1/4" x 5". No authors were attributed in the first seven editions, but as from the 8th edition, the author has been Alan C Butcher. The 2013 edition was the last to be produced; Ian Allan was experiencing declining sales figures, no doubt due to information being freely available online nowadays, and decided to cease publication of the book.Read More
