Liverpool and Manchester Railway: A Mile by Mile Guide to the World's First "modern" Railway
HIS book attempts to fill in the details about the "Liver-pool and Manchester" so that it becomes more than just a hazy generality about the Rocket, Rainhill and an accident on opening day! It also attempts to describe just what is left and can be seen both by the traveller on a train and the explorer on foot or in car. Recently, the idea of the "Rail Trail" has been put forward to supplement the "Nature Trail" and the "Town Trail".
It is hoped that this book will be used as a
Rail Trail, and for that reason other interesting features visible from, and sometimes connected with, the railway are mentioned.
