The book is in very good condition,  the only defects are small creases and dirt on the front and back cover, inside the book the pages are clean and readable.

--------------------------------

Renowned for its express locomotive Mallard setting a world speed record (126mph) for steam locomotives that endures to this day, the London & North Eastern Railway was the second largest of the Big Four rail way companies to emerge from the 1923 grouping and also the most diverse, with its prestigious high-speed trains from Kings Cross balanced by an intensive suburban and commuter service from Liverpool Street and a high dependence on freight. Noted for its cautious board and thrifty management, the LNER gained a reputation for being poor but honest.Forming part of a series, along with The GWR Handbook, The LMS Handbook and The Southern Railway Handbook, this new edition provides an authoritative and highly detailed reference of information about the LNER.
