The Mansfield Railway by Robert Western
[paperback]
£17.95

isbn 9780853616030  Oakwood Press, 2019

The Mansfield Railway came into being thanks to some determined local individuals and opened in 1916.  Its prime purpose was to carry coal from the east Nottinghamshire coalfield, but it was also on the route for the "fast fish" trains from Grimsby to London. In addition it connected the coalfield towns with seaside resorts enabling holidays and day trips for the mining communities.  As services were cut, the railway gradually became a truncated line serving only the colleries and with the demise of the coal industry, the end was inevitable. 160pp, numerous b/w photos
