This album is not just a story of straight rails across a flat landscape. It captures the sights, sounds and smells of a once extensive and diverse system that stretched from the East Coast Main Line at Peterborough to the last roadside steam tramway in Britain. A wealth of unpublished photographs are complemented by stories of a rhubarb bridge, an engine-driving curate, and a mole-catching signalman.
