Newmarket to Haughley and Laxfield (Middleton)

Back Order

An illustrated history of the lines which ran east and west from Haughley; the line via Bury St Edmunds to Newmarket, and the rural branch which ran to Laxfield.

The line to Newmarket remains a vital part of the UK's rail freight infrastructure, while also carrying regular passenger trains. The branch to Laxfield however never recovered traffic after World War 2 and closed as early as 1952.

Newmarket to Haughley and Laxfield takes the form of a journey along the lines, 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 routes and the photographs are accompanied by many maps and track layout diagrams, timetable extracts and other period reproductions. Over 100 photographs. Hardback. 96 pages.
