The Lancashire Derbyshire and East Coast Railway: 3: A LD&ECR Miscellany, the Mansfield Railway and Mid-Notts Joint Railway Connections

Regular price £20.00

In the days when coal was "King" plans were laid for an East to West cross country railway to connect the Manchester Ship Canal at Warrington, to a new dock to be built near the east coast village of Sutton On Sea. Entitled The Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway, as history was to show only the Chesterfield to Pyewipe Junction section and a branch from Langwith to Beighton would ever be completed. Taken over by the G.C.R. in 1907, although primarily a coal carrying railway it had a passenger service that lasted in parts until 1955. Discover the former LD&ECR, the self-styled "Dukeries Route" and its connections through the lenses of photographers from a period of over 100 years. From the main line between Chesterfield and Lincoln, the Beighton Branch, the Sheffield District Railway, plus the connecting Mansfield Railway and the Mid Nott's Joint Railway, to the motive power depots at Chesterfield, Tuxford and Langwith Junction. This is a photographic journey bringing you the story of the railway from the early days to today, and the last coal train to use the route.

Royal Mail will only accept parcels up to 5kg in weight (2kg for Canada). If you are ordering multiple items that exceed these limits, please contact us first so that we can advise you of the appropriate shipping rate.

Due to the high volume of parcels going missing, we are no longer able to send untracked orders via third party mail handling services such as Parcel Motel. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.

Some countries charge import taxes and we suggest that in these cases, you asked for your order to be tracked so the local taxation authorities can trace your parcel.

Please note that courier services are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses. If you usually use a PO Box address, you will need to supply an alternative address if you require shipping by courier.
