DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION
The second in the well-received 'Rail Routes' series, Rail Routes in Hampshire and East Dorset allows for the exploration of the fascinating background of Hampshire railways back to their origins in 1840 - and follows their development into the 1980s.
The dramatic expansion during the 19th century gave way to sober reality in the Edwardian period, as competition from other forms of transportation began to have an impact. After intense usage of the various cross-country lines during World War 1, the 1920s and 1930s saw ever-increasing erosion of the railways' role by bus and car; the first branch line casualties occurred, although some were to remain in existence for freight traffic until Beeching. By comparison, new passengers were being won by electrification, a process stifled for a generation by the imposition of World War 2. If the competitive spirit between the Southern and Great Western Railway survived the 1948 Nationalisation, the justification for it soon sank as closure upon closure reduced the sprawling system to a few main lines; the 'branch' had all but vanished. The growl of the diesel replaced the romance of steam, while the historic route from London to Southampton and Bournemouth was electrified in 1967. But if most branch lines succumbed to rationalisation, this process in turn brought about the birth of preserved steam railways, while just over the horizon is the exciting prospect of an extension of the High Speed Train into Hampshire and East Dorset. Such is the continuing interest of the railway kaleidoscope almost 1 50 years after its inception - truly the Age of the Train!
