This book traces the development of the marshalling yard and examines technical advances made in wagon control systems. It examines British Railways’ policy towards marshalling yards in light of the 1955 Modernisation Plan and subsequently. It then goes on to look at individual yards in detail; from the earliest yards to the first mechanised hump yards, the Modernisation Plan yards and finally Britain’s last, fully automated, hump yards. A final chapter gives a global perspective and reveals the marshalling yard is still alive and well in other countries around the globe.
