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.
'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.'
