The unusual and the unexpected on British railways

by Dave Peel | 06 June 2013
Category: Industry Finance
Synopsis
Prior to the nationalisation of the railways in 1948, Britain's rail network was operated almost exclusively by four private companies. The 'Big Four' - the Great Western, the Southern, the London Midland & Scottish and the London & North Eastern - were not only nationalised in 1948, but consolidated into one large concern: British Railways. Each had built up its own system of working with its own rolling stock, staff and livery. Thus, BR inherited a diverse mix, not only of physical plant, but of traditions and loyalties developed over generations. Dave Peel looks at how BR overcome engineering incompatibilities and bureaucratic confusion on a national scale.
