After crossing the River Trent, the line follows the River Erewash for many miles, this being in an interesting and attractive valley.

Being of Midland Railway origin, this album contains many unique items of rolling stock and architectural details.

The massive Toton Yard is included, along with several other recent changes to the route.



'The time-honoured Mitchell/Smith partnership examines 13 locations on a route weaving between the major centres of Derby and Nottingham and notes how they have changed over the years... This Middleton book is yet another entertaining mine of information.'
(Steam World, Issue 381, March 2019)

'Reproduction is generally very good and anyone contemplating building a model of anywhere on this route (though you'd need a lot of space to fit in Toton and Trent!) will find this book of great value.'
(BRM Magazine, April 2019)
