Great Central in the Midlands (Transport Treasury)

1 In Stock

The photographic selection in this book follows the line from Staveley Central through the East Midland cities of Nottingham and Leicester to Brackley Central in Northamptonshire, the southernmost station on the Great Central main line in the Midlands area.

There was a wide variety of motive power used on the GCR due to it being used as a cross-country route and the fact that under British Railways ownership it was controlled by both the Eastern and Midland regions, as well as joint ownership of Nottingham Victoria with the Great Northern Railway.

Each photograph is accompanied by an extensive caption, providing historical background information about the location and the train illustrated. 112 pages.
