Lively and entertaining, and profusely illustrated with stunning photography - including archival images, dramatic construction shots and specially com missioned photographs - this fascinating book covers all aspects of the project, from design, planning and construction to the opening by Her Majesty The Queen and plans for the future. A fascinating record of a groundbreaking project, this book will appeal to all those interested in the railways and the built environment."--Jacket." ;
