Book review

edited by Gerald Jacobs

The fifth edition of this book detailing the Scottish and Manx rail networks marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first edition by John Yonge's Quail Map Co.

The hand-drawn diagrams of the previous editions have been converted to digital format, and updated to reflect the network as of December 2007.

There are 23 schematic maps, highlighting electrified lines and assets including hot axle box detectors and signalling centres.

As well as Network Rail lines, the book includes minor railways such as the 2 m gauge Cairn Gorm Mountain Railway and the 480 mm gauge Great Laxey Mine Railway.
