Railfuture’s latest book
BRITAIN’S GROWING RAILWAY
An A-Z Guide of Station and Line Reopenings
Britain's Growing Railway tells the success story of railways in Britain. It shows how 400 stations have been opened (or reopened) since 1960, along with 600 miles of new track
The two stars of the Britain's Growing Railway are the new Borders Railway from Edinburgh to Tweedbank, and Crossrail (Elizabeth line) in London
The book includes passenger usage figures from the Office of Rail and Road for each of the reopened stations
This latest edition of Britain’s Growing Railway celebrates the success of many of Railfuture’s campaigns and points the way to the future
The 192-page A5 size perfect-bound book has 64 more pages but is the same price as the 2010 edition
Britain's Growing Railway is an essential tool for rail campaigners, giving construction costs, funders, and station specifications, with examples of stations and lines where patronage has far exceeded expectations
The book costs £9.95 including postage and packing

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with
20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or
trade unions, and all members have an equal say.
Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links
for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and
freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.
Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from
road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of
services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.
