Example text

So there was a close correlation between the location of industry and the geography of the railway network, although this is not to say that every factory was rail connected. Most were not and the short distance carting of raw materials and part-finished or finished goods through the streets was important in every industrial area. Where goods needed to be moved by rail to or from premises which were not rail connected, the railway companies provided a network of public goods depots (also known as ‘stations’ in the Victorian period) and these were found in all settlements, large and small, along the railway network.

This produced various statutes which are seen as part of the ancestry of modern town planning (Ministry of Town and Country Planning and Department of Health for Scotland 1950; Ashworth 1954; Cherry 1974, 1988; Lawless and Brown 1986). Despite the legislation, the housing problem remained, but reformers saw a solution in facilitating access through cheap rail fares to better and affordable housing built on cheap suburban land. The first statutory provision was in 1861 (Royal Commission 1884, 49) but mass access to London’s railways did not arrive until the Cheap Trains Act of 1883: ‘the twopenny fare brought an entirely new travelling public on to the railways’ (Dyos and Aldcroft 1971, 219).

There was investment in automated marshalling yards at Toton, March and Feltham, and containerisation was introduced but, generally, innovation in freight handling was limited. The traditional methods were vulnerable to competition from road haulage with its ability to move goods door-to-door and failed to build on the competitive advantage of railways: the capacity to move large volumes quickly over medium and long distances. The railways remained hamstrung by their common carrier obligation too; this was such a burden that the companies belatedly launched the ‘Square Deal’ campaign in 1938 to have it removed.
