Have you ever dreamed of building a model of a favourite railway station for your layout, whether it be a modest branch line station, or a large town terminus? Have you ever wanted to re-create a beautiful station that you have seen at a railway modelling exhibition, or in a magazine, and felt that you needed a helping hand? If so, this is the book for you. Ian Lamb, a modeller of enormous experience, demonstrates how almost anybody, regardless of their modelling skills, can construct a pleasing and presentable model railway station in even a quite limited amount of space. Six specific UK stations, some real and some fictional, are selected as modelling case studies and the author provides detailed, practical information about different aspects of their construction. Throughout the book the author provides step-by-step guidance and illustrations and emphasizes how - with patience- modelling skills, confidence and ambition can all be improved over time. Moreover, he is ever mindful of how costs should be kept down to reasonable levels and reveals how materials and tools can often be the most simple and inexpensive of everyday household items. Superbly illustrated with 304 colour photographs.

The tracks of the Norfolk and Western Railway snaked through Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and the coalfields of West Virginia. For nearly 100 years, the Norfolk and Western brought freight, passengers, and economic vitality to large cities and rural mining towns. At each stop was the depot or station; some stations were large, architecturally ornate structures that represented the muscular energy and romantic era of this great steam railway with its famed J-class engines. In other places there were small wooden depots that depicted the hard-scrabble life of the mining communities, tucked amid steep mountain valleys that were indelibly shaped by the railway’s presence. Today some of those structures remain, while many disappeared when the railway ceased passenger or other service. The Norfolk and Western eventually merged with the Southern Railway, and though the trains of the Norfolk Southern still run along those same lines, they simply pass by where they used to stop many years ago.

Crime on Britain's railways decreased year-on-year over the past decade. That trend shows the effectiveness of the specialist rail policing provided by the British Transport Police (BTP). The Committee were impressed by the BTP's commitment to tackling crime while minimising delays for the travelling public. Despite the welcome decline in overall crime, we identified areas where the BTP could improve its performance. The British Transport Police Authority (BTPA) is the body with responsibility for setting the BTP challenging but achievable targets to tackle crime on the railway. The BTPA must fulfil its remit and avoid any perception that it is too close to the people whom it should be holding to account. The Committee concluded that the BTP model of developing specialist policing skills and securing funding from transport providers might usefully be applied to other transport modes, such as aviation. Such an approach could minimise delays, maximise security and reduce the cost of policing to taxpayers. In the course of the inquiry, the Committee heard that vulnerable children and young people are often found in and around railway stations and were surprised to learn that the BTP currently has no targets in relation to child protection. The Department for Transport, the BTPA, the BTP and the charity sector should work together to tackle this emerging issue by examining the available data and reviewing current practice.

The role of railways in urban development is the subject of this book. The central aim is to inquire into how especially the development of high-speed rail and light rail links will affect European cities. The analyses are carried out with special attention given to the broader institutional environment of the railway system, including the shift toward privatised railway companies and internationalisation.

From the aspect of urban planning, this research comes up with several strategies for station planning: (1) Promote mixed-use development and transit-oriented development in the suburban railway station project to increase mobility. (2) Create a transaction management platform to increase the supply of affordable housing in the station area. (3) Implement a feedback loop among stakeholders and introduce more investment to enhance local economic development.

In the half century after the building of the Crystal Palace (1851), some architects, engineers, manufacturers and theorists believed that the fusion of iron and ornament would reconcile art and technology and create a new, modern architectural language. This book studies the development of mechanised architectural ornament in iron in nineteenth-century architecture, its reception and theorisation, and the contexts in which it flourished. As such, it offers new ways of understanding the notion of modernity in Victorian architecture.

Contributors include: Jeremy Rewse-Davies, former Head of Design at London Transport, now heads the design consultancy Rewse Davies Associates, Dr Nigel Harris, Director of The Railway Consultancy and Jeremy Lloyd, an analyst with Urban Initiatives with experience in planning railway stations for the Railtrack and Underground networks. Planning, design and management are stages within a continuous process of asset stewardship. During the first stage the theoretical and political foundations are laid. During the second stage practical details are developed, and the assets themselves constructed and commissioned. The third and longest stage, management, oversees a process of alteration, maintenance, and repair that will continue throughout the life of the station. The management stage will, itself, contain elements of planning and design in order to realise alterations. A large organisation will be involved in planning, design and management all at once, planning a number of new and altered stations, organising the design and construction of a number more, and managing a large portfolio of stations of diverse size, age and condition. Each stage - planning, design and management - must bear in mind the needs of the succeeding stages. Each stage is constrained by decisions taken during the preceding stages. The bulk of the whole life cost of a project is committed early on. The process is cyclical - whether a vicious or virtual circle depends on the client, designer and manager. This book looks at the planning, design and management of railway stations. It examines a whole range of stations, from city stations handling tens of millions of passengers annually, through smaller urban and suburban stations, to rural halts. Commercial aspects and matters of image and branding are examined alongside technical and operational considerations. As important aspects of the rail renaissance that the world is now enjoying, metro and light rail stations are not neglected. Neither are specialist stations such as Parkways, rail-sea terminals and airport terminals. It is a vital purchase for architects, planners, engineers, developers, investors, consultants, operating companies worldwide as well as architectural students and libraries. Includes detailed analysis of station planning, design and management Considers all sizes and types of stations, including special types such as park-&-ride and stations for sports stadia Considers modular construction of stations as a means of achieving rapid, cost-effective improvements

Recent years have seen considerable changes in the technology of transportation with the development of high-speed rail networks, more fuelefficient automobiles and aircraft, and the widespread adoption of informatics in disciplines such as traffic management and supply chain logistics. The contributions to this volume assess transportation interactions with employment and income, examine some of the policies that have been deployed to maximize the economic and social impacts of transportation provision at the local and regional levels and analyze how advances in transportation technologies have, and will, impact future development. Due in part to the general liberalization of markets, there have been major changes in the institutional environment in which transportation is supplied; these changes inevitably affect wider economic systems and development, although in turn these changes feed back upon transportation networks. The contributors to this work develop these and other themes, from a variety of perspectives, implementing a wide range of academic approaches into their analyses. Stemming from initiatives of the Network on European Communications and Transport Activities Research (NECTAR), Transportation and Economic Development Challenges presents a body of research that exemplifies the organization's objective of fostering research collaboration around the world.
