Synopsis

The Leicester and Swannington Railway Today by Bill Pemberton. The L&SR was the first steam operated railway in the Midlands and was built to transport coal.

The three main civil engineering works can still be seen and visited; the Swannington Incline, the Bagworth Incline and Glenfield Tunnel. In addition various other items associated with the line still exist.

This book provides a photographic journey along this historic railway. Includes nearly 100 photographs and illustrations.
