The list of members of Britain's Great Little Railways is woefully out of date. Indeed, this list just seems to be reproduced each year without any attempt at updating. Furthermore, it cross references the Exmoor Steam Railway to the main section of the book, where it does not appear at all, owing to its temporary closure/5(2).

There will no further releases of Railways Restored - the edition was the last. Unfortunately, it is no longer economic to produce a book of this nature; sales have been dropping significantly over the last 5 years probably because most of the information included is now available online/5(26).

Published annually for over 30 years, Railways Restored is regarded as the 'Bible' by the railway preservation movement and is both well received by reviewers and readers. The book is fully revised to reflect the changes, new schemes and occasional closures, along with listings of locomotives on site/5(11).
