My ancestor was a Railway Worker

Frank Hardy, Society of Genealogists Enterprises Ltd, 2009, A5, 110pp, ISBN 9781907199028.

The author , a former professional railway civil engineer and currently an enthusiastic family historian, is well qualified in his subject and has produced an excellent publication. The period covered is from the start of the railways in 1825 to 1948. The book begins with a brief history of their creation, subsequent maintenance and operation, and of course, staff records. Each chapter includes sorces and where to find them. There are also some case studies, a list of towns served by more than one railway company, a glossary of terms, bibliography and an index which complete this important research guide. See also Was your grandfather a railwayman? for a complete list of staff records.
