Rules and Regulations

Anthony is pleased to announce his facsimile version of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway "Rules and Regulations March 1839" are now available  Here

These rules were the product of eight years of operating the world's first inter-city railway - lessons learned often the hard way, and sadly, fatally. They were the basis of the rules and regulations approved by the 'General Railway Conference' held in Birmingham in January 1841, and approved for use nationally in the first attempt to standardise signaling and safety protocals on the burgeoning railways of Britain. Their influence can also be seen in railway regulations in France.
