Carlisle to Beattock including the Dumfries Branch (Middleton)

Back Order

An illustrated history of the section of the West Coast Main Line between Carlisle and Beattock, also covering the branch line from Lockerbie to Dumfries.

While the West Coast Main Line route remains as important as ever to both passenger and freight traffic, the branch line to Dumfries closed in the 1950s, leaving the town of Lochmaben without a passenger service.

Carlisle to Beattock including the Dumfries Branch takes the form of a journey along the line, using photographs from all periods of railway history to illustrate the story of the line and how it changed over the years. Every station and many other interesting items of railway infrastructure are illustrated along the way.

The book includes many examples of passenger services and freight traffic on the route and the photographs are accompanied by many maps and track layout diagrams, timetable extracts and other period reproductions. Over 100 photographs. Hardback. 96 pages.
