  British Railways - Past and present I've been trawling through a lot of local history books at the library recently, and came across this little gem. It's as the thread title says. Currently only the UK railway map has stations. All stations are included, including where they’ve been re-sited. Station names change a lot, so I’ve tried to include text that represents all the variations. When searching for stations I suggest you use the * wildcard at the beginning of your search term to take account of different names.

British Railways Past and Present' is a nationwide series of books featuring photographs of railway locations taken several decades ago and comparing them with the same scene today. Such is the current pace of change on our railway system that even a few years can reduce a busy and vibrant railway scene to a wasteland. Overview.
