The London, Midland and Scottish Railway
Available in Stock
Despite its national importance, linking the cities of London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow, the West Coast Main Line was constructed in piecemeal fashion as a number of separate local lines. This second volume of photographs tracing its history focuses on two of these early lines: the Lancaster and Preston Junction Railway and the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway, which has a spectacular route including the famous climb to Shap Summit. The archive images are accompanied by detailed captions.
