Aided by both family connections and the support of the senior staff at the Caledonian Railway, Acworth reviews Scotland's 3,000 miles (5,000 km) of largely single-track railroad, with acute observations of the financial sense or otherwise of existing and proposed schemes. The Railway Race To The North is not long over, and this is a good time to address the "State of the Nation".
