Trans-Pennine Rail Routes - OPC
- Trans-Pennine Rail Routes
- The ten chapters in this book describe and illustrate the many rail routes built across the Pennines. Most were conceived as prime movers of freight traffic between industrialised Yorkshire and Lancashire. Lucrative freight traffic more than adequately justified the colossal civil engineering expense of promoting railways through some of the most difficult terrain in the country.
- This album compares and contrasts the different routes, taking the reader on a pictorial journey starting on the eastern side of the Pennines. Several of the lines, both open and closed, are very well known to enthusiasts throughout the country, and include the Cromford and High Peak, the Woodhead line, the Hope Valley route and probably the most famous of all, the Settle and Carlisle.
- Although Dr Les Nixon is one of the most respected and well known photographers at work today, this is in fact his first hardback black and white album to be published.
