Midland Main Lines
Nottingham to Mansfield
The Midland & Great Northern Railway route to today
by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith
This is the ninth and last volume in our popular series on railways to Nottingham and it contains two of three main lines that ran close together.
Unusually, it starts with four views of the biggest station, all created before photography started.
Vic Mitchells last book.
'Vic Mitchell's final book, penned shortly before his death in January, opens with a short but poignant tribute from his co-author and friend for 42 years Keith Smith, and then proceeds to unravel the complexity of three routes that once competed for business in the East Midlands. It is the ninth and last volume covering this area.'
Howard Johnston, Steam World (Issue 408, June 2021)
'This latest book is a fitting tribute [to the late Vic Mitchell]... Many of the photographs follow the ‘then and now’ theme, and always show (at least to me) how much has been lost with regard to the railways’ infrastructure.'
(Tony Wright, world-of-railways.co.uk, November 2021)
'Another good collection of images featuring both interesting traction and locations.'
