Midland Main Lines

Kettering to Nottingham

via Corby and Melton Mowbray

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

Once part of the Midland Railway main line, this scenic route traversed varied geology and thus the freight traffic was mixed. Passengers could enjoy the hilly terrain and fertile landscapes. Only the middle section remains in use, but one part has undergone unusual changes for train testing.

 

Reviews:

'This excellent book is organised geographically to portray the lines through detailed black & white maps and photographs from the pre-Grouping period up to the present day. ...Strongly recommended.'
(The Railway Magazine, February 2016)

'This book will be of interest to readers interested in this part of the country and railway history.'
(The Railway Observer, March 2016)
