An Alternative Look at the former GCR

I have just completed a new proofreading project for Pen & Sword Books, this one about the former Great Central Railway, but from a financial point of view. Author John Palmer has done a considerable job in researching and writing this new book, which looks at the financial background to the original GCR, how financial performance in subsequent years was affected not only by happenings within the railway industry, but by external issues as well. Rather than an emotive look at the GCR main line’s demise, this work looks at the financial background to the route and suggests sound economical reasons why the line sadly perished.
