Country Railway Routes
from Egginton Junction
by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith
The main line herein was that of the Great Northern Railway. It was built mainly for coal and so many big collieries are shown with their complex sidings.
The sad decline is also illustrated, plus many historical joys.
'A very interesting read and a useful addition to the series illustrating the railway past and present in the Derbyshire area.'
(M.Hastings, NRM Review - The Journal of the Friends of the National Railway Museum, No.175, Spring 2021)
'All are produced to the usual, excellent standard and follow the publisher's usual style of coloured cover with mono pages. I doubt there is a Journal reader who has not already seen and bought at least one title from this extensive encyclopaedic seral.'
(John New – SLS Journal, Sept/Oct 2020, no. 925, vol. 96)
[review covering: Nottingham towards Kirkby-in-Ashfield, New Mills to Sheffield, Ambergate to Mansfield, Derby-Ilkeston-Nottingham & Manchester to Bacup]
'Detailed maps are absolutey essential to explain a regional network of this compexity, and the authors have gone to great lengths to show how the GN lines interwove with those of the Midland and Great Central.'
