SHED SIDE IN SOUTH LANCASHIRE & CHESHIRE IN THE LAST DAYS OF STEAM ISBN: 9780752461205
by Kenn Pearce
In the 1950s and 1960s south Lancashire and Cheshire was criss crossed by a web of railway lines, servicing the various needs of local industries. The region was a haven for railway enthusiasts who pursued the hundreds of steam workhorses based at British Railways depots in 'chemical towns' such as Warrington, Widnes, Wigan and Sutton Oak, besides Southport and Northwich. While these facilities appeared less glamorous than larger counterparts in Liverpool or Manchester, the stories of the engines, trains and the men who were based at the depots in these towns was no less fascinating. Shed Side in South Lancashire and Cheshire provides a fascinating portrait of the daily operations of the freight and passenger trains of the region during the final decade of Britain's steam era. It evokes a period of grimy, metal clattering, smoke filled industry, and of an era forever etched in our industrial heritage.
