The terrain changes greatly on the routes and thus the freight traffic has varied over the years. Early electrification began in the Sheffield area.

All these issues are illustrated herein, along with a great variety of stations and trains, both freight and passenger.



'The book covers evolution of the route from its secondary and sometimes rural beginnings to its role in conveying millions of tons of coal, mined within the region, to the many post-war coal-fired power stations built abong the Trent. Many images cover the transition from steam to diesel-electric on such duties.'
(National Railway Museum Review, No. 164, Summer 2018)

'Messrs Mitchell and Smith are fast moving towards concluding their tour of Eastern Region routes. This book covers lines and stations that have clung on for dear life for 25 years but are now promised a brighter future under Network Rail.'
(Steam World, Issue 372, June 2018)
