Country Railway Routes

Nottingham-Long Eaton-Derby

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

The line-side varies greatly and includes many different industries, plus a rich variety of agricultural uses. In consequence, there is a great diversity of freight stock to be enjoyed.



'This is yet another volume to add to the 400+ in this encyclopaedic collection of books covering the current and former British railway system.'
(NRM Review - The Journal of the Friends of the National Railway Museum, No.172, Summer 2020)

'Full of contrasts, from small industrial locomotives, both steam and electric, through to modern locomotives and the latest Voyager DMUs...
  'It is a book that fills gaps between earlier published works covering the area, clearly buying the range will assist the usefulness of each individual book; however, that said, it is informative in its own right.'
(The Journal of The Stephenson Locomotive Society, May/June 2020, No.923, Vol.96)

'The book illustrates much of what has been lost forever; not just the locomotives and rolling stock (they're always changing) but the disappearance of a wonderful steam-age infrastructure...
   'As usual, anyone contemplating building a model of any of the locations illustrated will find this work invaluable. Indeed, anyone modelling Midland Railway practice (and its successors) will find plenty of use herein.'
(British Railway Modelling, May 2020)

'This volume is the usual mixture of timetables, maps, photographs with well-written captions and an eclectic range of ephemera, such as tickets and advertisements.'
(The Railway Observer, June 2020, Vol.90, No.1096)
