Great Central in the Midlands

The photographic selection within this book, concentrates around the Midlands for which the former Great Central Railway's route fought for traffic alongside so many other pre-grouping lines, ultimately to lose out as a direct result of Dr. Beeching in September 1966. We can enjoy some of the work from cameraman Mike Mitchell, as we follow the line from Staveley Central through the East Midland cities of Nottingham and Leicester to Brackley Central in Northamptonshire, the southernmost station on the Great Central main line in the Midlands area. There was a wide variety of motive power used over the Great Central due to it being used as a cross-country route and the fact that under British Railways ownership it was controlled by both the Eastern and Midland Regions, as well as joint ownership of Nottingham Victoria with the Great Northern Railway in pre-grouping days.
