Overview

The Principal Factors in Freight Train Operating by Philip Burtt

This book, first published in 1923, examines the states of Britain’s rail network at the cusp of great change. The Railways Act of 1921 placed public service on behalf of the community as the raison d’etre of a railway company’s existence – rather than the private gain of shareholders.
