Clark, Gordon (1999) Where is Stranraer now? Space-time convergence re-visited. World Transport Policy and Planning, 5 (2). pp. 11-17. ISSN 1352-7614Full text not available from this repository.
This paper revisits the concept of space-time convergence in the context of data on InterCity rail journey times in the UK between 1914 and 1998. The paper concludes that the concept of convergence needs to be considerably refined in both historical and geographical senses in order to fully represent long-run trends in the adoption of new transport technologies. The paper considers the geographical and policy implications of the quest for speed, particularly for the role of London.
