"THIS collection of the General Railway Acts was first published in the year 1845, and during the eighty-six years that have since elapsed it has passed through fifteen editions, each containing the enactments for the time being in force relating to Railways, the last edition being published in October, 1898.
The importance of the enactments affecting railways which have since received the sanction of Parliament renders necessary a new (the sixteenth) edition of the volume now issued accordingly.
The volume now published contains the general Statutes relating to Railways in England and Ireland in force at the close of the Session of 1911, and includes the Companies, Lands, and Railways Clauses Consolidation Acts, with all the amending enactments complete. The Statutes prior to the Session of 1901, have been revised in accordance with the Statutes as passed by the Statute Law Revision Committee."
