From the rear side cover: In the first decade of the 21 st century, the integrated iron and steelworks of Corus plc on Teesside evolved into a major supplier of steel slab to international markets operating under the name of Teesside Cast Products (TCP) and, between 2003 and 2007, internal rail operations at the plant expanded to support the new outbound supply chain. This account... sets these changes in a historical context and explores the detail of the expanded rail operations, thereby providing a rare insight into the day to day running of an internal railway system at a modern integrated steelworks. The final section explains the mothballing of the plant in 2010 and its restart two years later under the new ownership of Sahaviriya Steel Industries (SSI) of Thailand.
