A Lancashire Triangle Reviewed

A Lancashire Triangle Reviewed

Regular price £26.95

A Lancashire Triangle Part One was first printed in 1996, followed by a subsequent reprint shortly after. The main topic of the work was the London & North Western’s Wigan-Tyldesley-Eccles line of 1864 which had never been fully covered. Very occasionally, it would rate a sparse mention in the odd work by other authors.

A Lancashire Triangle Reviewed gives the reader an opportunity for further study of this route, closed now for 46 years, through an almost completely new set of photographs using some of the original, amended or new text. This is a line which for 1 years relied heavily on the coal industry for its sustenance, the raison d’etre for its very existence. Such was the number of collieries alongside or within easy reach of this route, that the sight and sound of steam engines working hard is forever etched in the memory of the older generations.

Whilst the Bolton & Leigh route does not feature, the Tyldesley-Leigh-Pennington line of the same 1864 Act is included, together with a few pages on the Black Harry Line, another branch scarcely mentioned in other works. The concluding pages follow on from Pennington Junctions to Kenyon Junction.
