History

The British Railways Board (BRB) was created on 1 January 1963 under the Transport Act 1962 and took over the responsibilities of the British Transport Commission (BTC). The BRB operated under a similar structure to the BTC Railway Executive whereby there were five regions - Eastern, London Midland, Western, Southern and Scottish (later rebranded ScotRail). A North Eastern Region existed initially but was merged into the Eastern Region in 1967.
