All stations to Longridge

£9.99

Product description

David Hindle's latest well illustrated book traces the evolution and complete history of the Preston to Longridge branch line from its official opening on 1 May 1840, to the last remaining segment of the branch in 1994. The first railways were crucial in expanding and transforming the social and economic prosperity of the country's towns and villages and this particular branch line was certainly no exception. The combined mineral and passenger line was only the second in the order of railways to open around Preston and throughout its 154 years the seven-mile branch unquestionably sustained a fascinating and complex history, now revealed by the author's meticulous research skills. We predict that 'All Stations to Longridge' will become a railway classic epitomising the role of an English country branch line of yesteryear including a substantial chapter describing and evoking nostalgic memories of the integrated and unique Whittingham Hospital Railway. There is little doubt that the Preston to Longridge branch line has never had its history so comprehensively documented in a very readable story form and as such it should appeal to both social historians and railway enthusiasts alike as the most definitive work on the subject.
