Product Information


ISBN:9781911038856, HARDBACK MID MAY

The eleventh in a series of books depicting the First 25 years of British Railways covers the lines in North Wales, Chester and the Wirral peninsular. We start at Gobowen on the Great Western Railway main line from Shrewsbury going north via Wrexham to the outskirts of Chester then back to Wrexham to pick up the former Great Central Railway line to the Wirral, ending on the banks of the River Mersey at Seacombe after calling at Croes Newydd, Rhosddu and Bidston engine sheds. While on Merseyside we look at the Wirral electric units, the pioneering main line electrified suburban system. After visiting the docks and Mollington Street shed, we return south from Birkenhead to Chester, branching off to Helsby and Frodsham. At Chester we untangle the complex of lines into General station and contrast this with the GCR and Cheshire Lines Committee Northgate station, and then visit the City’s three engine sheds and also Mold Junction. After the bustle of Chester, the rural line to Denbigh provides a complete contrast before we revert to the L&NWR main line along the North Wales coast passing through the popular seaside resorts, taking a short detour down the Dyserth branch, before resuming our journey to Llandudno Junction.
