The Guinness Rail Fact Book by John Marshall

With facts and statistics on all aspects of rail travel in over 190 different countries, "The Guinness Rail Fact Book" is a useful reference source for all rail enthusiasts. All the railway systems of the world are covered to varying degrees, with each listing containing details of total route lengths, gauges, volume and types of traffic, details of rolling stock and motive power, longest tunnels and degrees of electrification. Included in its in-depth coverage of the railways of the United Kingdom are details of the pre-nationalization railway companies, statistics on the British Rail network and its operation, rolling stock, privatisation, the Channel Tunnel and preservation of steam railways. The picture is completed by summaries of railway history, biographical details of leading railway engineers and pioneers, a detailed listing of over 110 metro and rapid transit systems and features on current topics such as the Japanese Seikan tunnel and the problems caused by both the division of the railway network of the former USSR and the integration of the separate networks of the former East and West Germany.
