BR Chronicles - Charting 50 Years of British Railways/British Rail History. This forensic-like analysis charts 50 years of British Railways History, from its formation in 1948 through to the completion of Privatisation of British Rail in 1997, when the national network was managed by Railtrack. Each 100 page publication covers a half decade and goes into great details with historical events, vital statistics and a closer look at individual elements, such as the introduction of the first diesel locomotives, the construction of new freight yards, the railway postal service, The BTC and changes in railway management, the Modernisation Plan, the BR 'standard' steam locomotives, Mark One Coaching Stock, electrification, Prototype 'Deltic' and so much more. The series will include a preview of Nationalisation, the events that led up to the amalgamation of the former 'Big Four' railway companies into the behmoth that was British Railways, which as well as the railways included ships, hotels, an air postal service and much, much more. We’ll also examine the introduction of BR's new standard steam locomotives which were allegedly based upon the best practices of the combined Big Four following extensive testing following the creation of BR and looks at the first main line diesel locomotives.
