Eastern Main Lines
Alnmouth to Berwick
including the Seahouses and Tweed Dock branches
by Roger Darsley & Dennis Lovett
In 1850 the completion of the Royal Border Bridge, linking the two banks of the River Tweed, was the final piece of the jigsaw that saw the East Coast Main Line link London with Edinburgh.
The line covers several intermediate stations that were closed during the 1950s. The Seahouses and Tweed Dock branches provide interesting studies of lines serving East Coast harbours.
'The authors are clearly on top of their subject, and it's good Middleton Press are now making serious progress with this previously under-covered part of the UK that has a special individual character.'
(Howard Johnston, Steam World, 2022)
'Here are two fine additions to the superb series that covers distinct geographical areas of our extensive railway system through historic monochrome images... Strongly recommended indeed.' (RSS)

[Review on Carlisle to Beattock & Alnmouth to Berwick]
'We rarely cross the Border in this magazine, but there are occasional exceptions. This book is worth that. From the prolific authors of five other books on Scottish routes, this is again a high standard publication.'
(West Highland News (Friends of the West Highland Lines), 2021)
'Some of the photographs are truly remarkable, especially those from earlier times.'
