Northern Lines

Manchester to Bacup

including Bury and The East Lancashire Railway

by Tom Heavyside and Vic Mitchell

This route through Lancashire has been one of complete contrasts, both in the past and present.

The first stage to Bury was an early electrification scheme and continues as part of the burgeoning Metrolink system.

Closed to passengers beyond Bury by BR in 1972, the line to Rawtenstall still functions under the heritage East Lancashire Railway.

 

Reviews:

'All are produced to the usual, excellent standard and follow the publisher's usual style of coloured cover with mono pages. I doubt there is a Journal reader who has not already seen and bought at least one title from this extensive encyclopaedic seral.'
(John New – SLS Journal, Sept/Oct 2020, no. 925, vol. 96)
[review covering: Nottingham towards Kirkby-in-Ashfield, New Mills to SheffieldAmbergate to Mansfield, Derby-Ilkeston-Nottingham & Manchester to Bacup]
