In the days when coal was “King” plans were laid for an east-to-west cross-country railway, to connect Warrington to a new dock near the east coast village of Sutton On Sea. Entitled The Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway, as history was to show only the Chesterfield to Pyewipe Junction section and a branch from Langwith to Beighton would ever be completed.

Taken over by the G.C.R. in 1907, although primarily a coal carrying railway it had a passenger service that lasted in parts until 1955. This Volume looks back at the very beginnings of plans for the LD&ECR and we will also take a look at two more connecting lines, namely the Mansfield Railway and the Mid Nottinghamshire Joint Railway. The Mansfield Railway would become a huge influence in moving coal along the LD&ECR lines and is an interesting story in its own right. Discover the self-styled “Dukeries Route” and its connections through the lenses of photographers from a period of over 100 years.
