Coventry had one of the first stations in the Midlands and the district soon became very industrialised. The complexities of the railways that followed, both here and northwards, are illustrated in detail.

The trains were of great variety and the more rural route to Rugby adds diversity. Fascinating junctions abound near Leicester.
