Midland Main Lines
Ilkeston to Chesterfield
including many collieries
by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith
The line runs up the deep Erewash Valley as far as Pye Hill and the former colliery branches are shown in detail.
A tunnel and high ground follows, with more collieries, plus other industries. The varied rolling stock is shown in detail.
'There is a wealth of information illustrated in this book, and having read it, many readers will doubtless be tempted to read the associated volumes linked to the Ilkeston area which are referenced in the text. This is recommended reading.'
(Review - The Journal of the Friends of the National Railway Museum, No.168, Summer 2019)
'This is another excellent Middleton volume covering the Notts/Derbys coalfield area.'
