In this volume, leading transport history scholars take a fresh look at the impact of the Cold War upon European railways both before and after 1989. As well as addressing the development of eastern and central European railways, the book examines how transport links have been reconnected and reconfigured in the twenty years since the reunification of Europe. In particular, it focuses upon the former communist countries and how they have responded to the challenges and opportunities railways offer both nationally and internationally.
