An Introduction to Cumbrian Railways


Over the years we have had quite a few books on Cumbrian railways, and no wonder - for such a small county, Cumbria had more than its fair share of Railway Companies! Before the grouping, there were 11 distinct railway companies in Cumbria as it now is which leads to confusion today, unless you know the county well.

So a concise introduction to these railways is undoubtedly needed, and this is it. From well known author David Joy, it covers the history of Cumbrian railways from the first in 1836 up until 2017.

Filled with B&W and some colour photographs, plus excellent maps. Easy and informative reading.

96 page paperback.
