The Railways of Scotland: Their present position, with a glance at their past and a forecast of their future (1890)
W. M. Acworth
ISBN 9781845301187
Paperback  224 pages
Published 15 February 2012    UK Price £13.95    US Price $19.95   

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".
