The Main Lines of East Anglia

The Main Lines of East Anglia

Regular price £23.00

This book examines the changing railway network in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, as well as north Essex, and parts of Hertfordshire. A variety of lines are explored, including routes which were promoted by their owners, routes with regular scheduled through service to London, and routes with other significant long-distance destinations. Each line is covered in detail, with an outline of its history, as well as detailed information on its services, both passenger and goods, on local and main line trains. The author also examines the origins of every line, and how major changes, such as the Beeching Report, has affected development and growth over the years up to the present day. Also listed are lines which have closed, if relevant. This wonderful album brings together a vast array of useful technical information sprinkled with personal anecdotes and stories of those who worked on the line, bringing the story to life. With a beautiful collection of carefully selected photographs and other memorabilia, this book will bring this long lost region back to life. Perfect for railway modellers, historians, and anyone keen to revisit this important region.
