SECR (1899-1923) LBSCR & LSWR - Locomotive Origins, Lifespan and Name Details
by Mike WIlliams
This new book provides readers with comprehensive coverage of the Mersey Railway and Lancashire and Yorkshire network. These early electrified lines transported thousands of commuters, workers and shoppers into central Liverpool, providing essential links with the surrounding suburbs. Today, these lines remain a vibrant and important part of the transport infrastructure, having seen strong growth over the last 30 years.

Within this book, a carefully selected range of color views provides a unique picture of these two fascinating networks, with scenes of rolling stock, depots, yards, tunnels, stations, signal boxes as well as passengers. Rail enthusiasts will also delight at rare scenes of the electrified Southport-Crossens service which closed in 1964. Other images feature the engineering works in connection with the creation of the Loop and Link, the new electrified extensions to Kirkby, Hunts Cross and Chester, and the historic final withdrawals of the much-admired 502/503s.

The earliest color views even capture the legendary Mersey Railway stock, as well as the first 25kV electric locomotives which reached Liverpool in the early 1960s. High-quality views of Merseyside's best-loved electric railway, the Liverpool Overhead are also included. The authors have worked tirelessly to provide an excellent text, supplemented by this wonderful collection of images with detailed captions.

Rail enthusiasts nationwide will be eager to glimpse the treasure trove of rare railway snapshots, whilst locals will enjoy the scenes of their beautiful city in a gentler time. This is one not to be missed!
