    I recently purchased the six copies of The Railway Magazine which were issued in 1948. The first of these coincided with the formation of British Railways, and the January/February 1948 issue of the magazine highlights for the readers a little of the history of railways in Britain which led up to that momentous occasion. The linked article below builds on the article in The Railway Magazine.

    When was nationalisation of the railways in Great Britain first promoted as a significant idea? Perhaps you'd like to fix a year in your mind before reading the linked post.
