Launched in 2006, "The Modern Railway" is the indispensable guide to the UK Railway Industry. It guides its readers through the sometimes complex structure of today's railway, and is therefore popular with rail managers and staff, investors, regular travellers and the informed observer. This innovative annual publication details all parties involved in the operation, maintenance, manufacture, supply and management of the UK rail industry and gives an overview of developments in Europe. Edited by Modern Railways' Ken Cordner with contributions from Roger Ford, Howard Johnston, John Gough and other members of the team, "The Modern Railway Directory 2008" examines all aspects of: policy and finance; infrastructure maintenance and renewal; train operation (passenger and freight); Civil Engineering; Rolling Stock manufacture and maintenance; signal & telecommunications; rail innovations & exhibitions; and light rail & metro systems.
