Facts And Figures About British Railways, By British Railways

Book Review: I purchased the above booklet, issued for 1953 purely out of interest. The seller kindly threw in the booklets for 1956/1958/1967. Having had a quick look at the 1953 issue, it is quite interesting. There are sections on 'Comparisons', (did you know that BR "carry more than twice as many passengers as railroads in U.S.A"?); 'Expenditure', ("Train and Vehicle Operating Costs" equalled 129.7 million!); 'Branch Lines'; 'Ships and Ferries'; 'Police' amongst others. Other interesting, (to some), facts - 201 Diesel locomotives were in service at the end of 1952 and at the end of 1952, BR had 601,381 staff with a wage bill of 252,500,000.00p ! If you are into facts and figures, these booklets give a wealth of information.
