New Mills to Sheffield
by Vic Mitchell and Keith Smith
Tourists have enjoyed this journey across the Peak District for many generations. Coal has been moved along the line in some very lengthy trains, with varied haulage. The other mineral conveyed in quantity is limestone, which appears in many of the very interesting photographs.
'This interesting book provides an informed historical record of this important route across the Pennines and is well worth reading.'
(M.Hastings, NRM Review - The Journal of the Friends of the National Railway Museum, No.175, Spring 2021)
'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 Sheffield, Ambergate to Mansfield, Derby-Ilkeston-Nottingham & Manchester to Bacup]
'The books follows the familiar format with a brief geographical and historical background, ephemera and photographs with good captions.'
(The Railway Observer, August 2020, Vol.90, No.1098)
