These two counties form the north-western edge of East Anglia, part of the historic Fenland region. Building railways in the fens offered few challenges in the way of steep gradients or the need for tunnels. Instead, the marshy terrain needed bridging, sometimes with structures capable of opening to allow the passage of boats. Though these counties were mostly Great Eastern Railway-dominated, other companies ran lines through them. The author observes that the older (and perhaps more important) routes remain open while later additions to the network have succumbed to closure. The book is the usual lost railways cocktail of dates and distances for each closed line and archive photos of stations. It also includes stations closed on lines still open.
