back to bournemouth
This Midland Railway map is an eye-opener. With its major routes in bold it gives a clear picture of the MR's priority routes. London up to Manchester and Liverpool then up to Glasgow and Edinburgh. The bottom left limb of course goes through Birmingham to Bath and Bournemouth. It is ridiculous that in 2007 Bournemouth is still deprived of its natural outlet to the Midlands and the North, particularly bearing in mind the huge increase in population in the Bournemouth/Poole conurbation. It can't be that many years now before this is corrected!
