A county which can justifiably claim to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in Britain, Lancashire was also, as a result, one of the first to develop a comprehensive railway network. As soon as entrepreneurs realised that the two perfectly complemented each other, railways and industrialisation developed in tandem. This new history of the county's railways documents the heyday of Victorian steam followed by the slow decline from the 1920s to the Beeching era of the 1960s. Featuring fifty superb period photographs, the locations illustrated include: Blackpool Central, Greenfield, White Bear, Gillett's Crossing, Wrea Green, Bradley Fold, Bolton Great Moor Street, Pennington, Kenyon Junction, Holcombe Brook, Tottington, Brinscall, Feniscowles, Delph, Knott End, Preesall, Garstang & Catterall, Great Harwood, Glasson Dock, Halsall, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Oldham Werneth, St Helens Central, Middleton Junction, Morecambe Euston Road, Bare Lane, Heysham Harbour, Oldham Clegg Street, Park Bridge, Skelmersdale, Longridge, Ribbleton, Grimsargh, Fleetwood, Bacup, Walkden Low Level, Hesketh Bank, Hutton & Howick, Haslingden, Lancaster Green Ayre, Caton, Hornby, Wigan Central, Bickershaw & Abram, Worsley and Thornton-for-Cleveleys.
