TRAINS & RAILWAYS: GENERAL INTEREST. In this new title John Balmforth presents a comprehensive history of the TOC. The book outlines' in detail the history of South West Trains including information on the expansion of the franchise to cover the Isle of Wight and the development of Stagecoach's rail operations through East Midlands Trains. Filling a huge gap, this title is the first ever title solely focused on South West Trains and its operations. When the area of the old Southern Region was broken up prior to Privatisation, three TOCs representing the old Eastern, Central and Western divisions were established. Of these, two of the new franchises passed to Connex led somewhat chequered careers since but the third, South West Trains was passed to Stagecoach.

Abstract : In Grant v. South-West Trains, the European Court of Justice ruled that an employer's refusal to grant an employee concessionary travel for her samesex partner on the company's trains—when such a concession was readily available to employees with opposite-sex partners—did not constitute sex discrimination contrary to Article 141 of the EC Treaty. From the standpoint of Community law, the Grant decision has been criticised from a number of angles: for example, it has been suggested that the decision contains an ungenerous approach to the Community law principles of respect for fundamental rights and equality, that it is inconsistent with the Court's earlier decision in P v. S and Cornwall County Council, and that—given the weight attached by the Court of Justice to European Convention on Human Rights case law—it has been undermined by the later decision of the European Court of Human Rights in Smith v. United Kingdom .

The Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies provides a new forum for the scrutiny of significant issues in European Union Law, the Law of the Council of Europe, and Comparative Law with a "European" dimension, and particularly those which have come to the fore during the year preceding publication. The contributions appearing in the collection are commissioned by the Centre for European Legal Studies (CELS) Cambridge, which is the research Centre of Cambridge University Law Faculty specialising in European legal issues. The papers presented are all at the cutting edge of the fields which they address, and reflect the views of recognised experts drawn from the University world, legal practice, and the civil services of both the EU and its Member States. Inclusion of the comparative dimension brings a fresh perspective to the study of European law, and highlights the effects of globalisation of the law more generally, and the resulting cross fertilisation of norms and ideas that has occurred among previously sovereign and separate legal orders. The Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies is an invaluable resource for those wishing to keep pace with legal developments in the fast moving world of European integration.

Ticketing and concessionary travel on public transport, is the 5th report from the Transport Committee in 2007-08 session (HCP 84, ISBN 9780215514493). It examines the the aim of producing an integrated ticketing system across England, with the introduction of smartcard concessionary travel passes.The report inquires into the extent to which integrated ticketing on public transport has been achieved for all users; the issues regarding smartcards; arrangements for revenue protection (stopping fare-evasion) which will be affected by new forms of ticket; the impact of concessionary travel in England which is costing £1 billion per annum. The Committee has set out a number of recommendations, including: the Committee believes that the Government in terms of promoting integrated bus ticketing has achieved too little of practical value; it recommends that Traffic Commissioners be given powers to arbitrate where bus companies and local transport authorities disagree; that coach travel should be given greater consideration in future statements of public transport policy; it is imperative that the full range of tickets, including multi-modal options be available at all main outlets so that the Government's aim of fare simplification can be better acheived (see The Future of Rail, Cm. 6233, ISBN 9780101623322); that the Government needs to ensure suitable guidelines on differential pricing is included in decisions on rail fares and rail franchises with particular reference to smartcards; that the Government needs to articulate a clearer strategy for the development of integrated ticketing in general and smartcards in particular; that the Government should move towards a unified system of public transport revenue protection; that the Department of Transport should commission an evaluation of the benefits of the national scheme for free local bus travel and that national concessionary travel is properly funded.

Railroad Depots Of Southwest Ohio

Springfield was the original destination of the two oldest railroad companies to lay rails in Ohio, the Mad River and Lake Erie Railroad and the Little Miami Railroad. This would form the first rail link between Lake Erie and the Ohio River. Other routes became more important as rails eventually spread like spokes of a wheel from Cincinnati, and connections were made to Akron, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Indianapolis, Lexington, Louisville, Marietta, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Toledo as well as many other cities by the late 1800s. Hundreds of depots were erected to serve train travelers, ranging from the smallest shelter to the standard combined passenger-freight building to the major city passenger terminal. Cincinnati, Dayton, and Springfield became railroad centers, and towns like Blanchester, Hamilton, Loveland, Middletown, Morrow, Wilmington, and Xenia, served by more than one line, became busy transfer points. With the decline of rail passenger service, depots became unnecessary—many were demolished. Railroad Depots of Southwest Ohio presents a pictorial look at a sampling of these grand structures when they were in their prime.
