The Lancashire Derbyshire & East Coast Railway Volume 3: LD&ECR Miscellany, The Mansfield Railway and Mid-Notts Joint Railway Connections (Fonthill)

1 In Stock

The third and final volume of this detailed history of the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway – a project to link Warrington with an east coast port at Sutton-on-Sea. Only part of the route was ever built, from Chesterfield to Pyewipe Junction with a branch to Beighton, near Sheffield. The line was taken over by the Great Central Railway in 1907 and used largely as a coal carrying railway.

This Volume goes back to the very beginnings of the railway and examines early plans for the LD&ECR. It also takes a look at two connecting lines – the Mansfield Railway and the Mid Nottinghamshire Joint Railway. The Mansfield Railway would become a huge influence in the movement of coal along the LD&ECR lines and is an interesting story in its own right.

The Lancashire Derbyshire and East Coast Railway Volume 3 concludes the story of the line that became known as “The Dukeries Route”. It includes many illustrations covering a period of over 100 years, plus maps, diagrams and recent material showing the sections of line still in use today. 192 pages.
