Country Railway Routes
Ambergate to Buxton
including the Peak Railway
by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith
The high level limestone offers superb scenery and is in many of the views enclosed herein.
It has thus generated much passenger traffic and also the present Monsal Trail on the track bed.
Stone traffic is also included, with a variety of locomotives.
'To say that the photographic coverage is extensive is a bit of an understatement, because it really is phenomenal...
Thoroughly recommended for all of those who are interested in the lines in this beautiful part of England, especially those building models of them.'
(British Railway Modelling, September 2019)
'Middleton's ever-expanding library of regional railway histories has found its way to the much-loved - and much-missed - Midland Railway (MR) main line between Ambergate and Buxton... The book features a wide range of Midland, LMS and BR traction - steam and diesel - with a fascinating mix of passenger and goods traffic that once flowed through the valleys and gorges of the White Peak.'
(The Railway Magazine, September 2019)
'The great strength and value of these books is the visual coverage of the locations along the route in photographs and maps. These make the book a valuable quick reference when one wants to know what a particular location, or locations, on the route looked like.'
(The Journal of the Signalling Record Society, No. 196, Winter 2019)
'Regular readers will know by now that I always find the [Middleton Press] volumes of interest, partly because of the historical timetables and tickets shown and the fascinating images.'
(PHF, Railway Observer, September 2019, Vol.89, No.1087)
'[This] is recommended reading to any who have some knowledge or who wish to learn about this railway through the Peak District.'
(NRM Review, Autumn 2019)
[Review on Ambergate to Buxton and Buxton to Stockport:]
'As always, if you have even a passing interest in the locations covered, these books are a value for money purchase for your bookshelf.'
