Variety abounds in this volume. Views range from activities associated with the once-busy iron industry to main line passenger trains.

Most pictures are of delightful views of the small rural stations serving communities of under 200.

The long closed routes via Kelmarsh and Theddingworth are featured in detail.



'[This album] illustrates the route from its earlier days through to today, but for me it's the junctions, branches and private industrial railways that remind us how the main lines were fed by hundreds of smaller railways for both passenger and freight.'
(Steam World, June 2015)
