Further Details

The Railway Clearing House was responsible for co-ordinating traffic across the 120 different railway companies that at one time operated in Britain. It played a vital role in integrating the many companies into something closer to one system, for example by standardising signalling and telegraph systems. This book tells the story of the Clearing House and its importance to the British economy. Condition: A little edge wear to the jacket (not price-clipped), otherwise book and jacket in very good condition.
