Bedford to Wellingborough
including Hitchin, Northampton and Higham Ferrers
by Geoff Goslin
The Hitchin - Bedford route formed part of the Midland Railway's first line for London trains. Its subsequent secondary nature is fully illustrated, along with the lesser lines to Northampton Castle and Higham Ferrers. The varied trains and architecture of the main line are shown, along with the diverse ephemera from the past.
'Rail enthusiasts among readers will no doubt be interested in a new pictorial history book featuring past and present stations in the county.'
(Evening Telegraph, 10th September 2004)
'With its good selection of black and white photographs, sections of Ordnance Survey maps, timetables and ticketing detail, the book follows the tried and tested format that is Middleton Press.'
(Model Railway Express, 2004)
'Once again the Middleton Press has produced a concise precis of the historical information available.'
