£18.95
Back Order

A look at the popular Woodhead Route from the steam era onwards to electrification, with some photographs of modern day operations mostly taken at the western end of the line. Illustrated throughout in black & white, the book also contains detailed captions and maps to help tell the story. Introductory text provides information on the rise and eventual fall of the line, with dwindling freight traffic and non-standard electrification leading to the closure of the section between Penistone and Hadfield in the 1980s. Captions accompany each photograph and maps of key locations are also included. Hardback. 96 pages.
