Michael Portillo has presented ten seasons of this ever-popular show on BBC Two, covering every part of the existing train network in Britain, as well as others that were closed as a result of the Beeching Report in 1963. Across a decade of these journeys, Michael has discovered the historical and cultural past of every corner of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, giving railway fans a unique insight into our shared past of train travel since the Victorian era. With the anniversary, a new book will celebrate Michael’s top 50 journeys from the hundreds he has covered, supported with colour illustrations and maps.
