Beechings Legacy
£16.99  

This is the story of how around 150 Pre-Grouping railways of Britain evolved from their Golden Age in the heady Edwardian era to become the less popular nationalised British Railways. It fell to Dr Richard Beeching Chairman of the British Railways Board (1961-1965) to wield his axe in order to achieve the Governments ambition of turning the railways back into profit. Before BeechingTo start our journey we follow the path of Britains railways from the pre-Grouping of the Edwardian era when steam was king through to Beechings appointment as Chairman of the British Railways Board in 1961. Beechings AxePicking up the story in 1961 the second part of this series follows the chain of events after Beeching was appointed as the first Chairman of the British Railways Board. His task was to draw up a plan to eliminate the networks losses and to reorganise the railways for the future. The Beeching RailwayIn March 1963 Beechings proposals - popularly known as the Beeching Axe - were unsurprisingly accepted in full by the Minister of Transport Ernest Marples despite some opposition from within the Conservative party. Beechings LegacyThe final part of our story concludes with the often-painful experience of travelling on todays railways. With a myriad of operators taking rail travel into a future with a seemingly never-ending growth in traffic it proves that Britains railway network has a vital part to play in the transport industry of the future.
