Staggering compilation of detailed information relating to the nation-wide railroad systems then existing all across India. Endless statistics and facts for all the many lines and companies.

A rare book.
Ex-library example, clearly a limited press run. Book remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
