Rail Guide 2016 – Colin J Marsden (9.5/10)

Interested in knowing about every locomotive, EMU, DMU, Coach and Track Machine operated in the United Kingdom by Operator? Then this book is the one you need to buy. Another Ian Allan publication this book’s divided into lots of sections:

  • Train Operating Companies,
  • Freight Operating Companies,
  • Infrastructure Companies,
  • Train Engineering Companies,
  • Rolling Stock Hire Companies,

  • TOPS Numbered Traction,
  • Isle of Mann Railways,
  • Irish Railways,

  • Light Rail Operators, and finally
  • Rail Data Tables.

I told you that it was the book about UK railways. If you are a modeller, especially of the modern era, then this book is invaluable. For those interested in tracking down your favourite locos and other pieces of kit on the rails around the UK you cannot go past it.
