This book is without doubt the most detailed and argueably the definitive history of this famous Scottish railway company...

From the rear side cover: Founded in 1842 as a line from Edinburgh to Berwick, the North British grew to become the largest of Scotland's old railway companies. Across eight eventful decades, its profound effect on social, economic and industrial life was counterpointed by its own internal problems and power struggles as it strove to cope with the demands of an unevenly expanding economy and a changing society. Based on original sources this definitive new history includes area maps, a detailed timeline and many illustrations.
