This album is unique in the series in that it has details of an 1832 pioneering route - the Leicester & Swannington Railway.

The combination of granite, sanitary ware, coal and beer make an unusual selection of products to be discussed in a Midland volume.

 

Review:

'The book gives a fascinating insight into the line and encouraged this reader to do further research.'
