A salute to a significant part of Warwickshire's heritage, this detailed history traces the Stonebridge Railway line from its beginnings in the 1830s to its closure in the 1960s. Numerous photographs and illustrations depict rolling stock locomotives, trackside features, track plans and scenery. This account tells of ambition, greed, royal favours and double-crossing during the early days of railway mania. Deep in the heart of Warwickshire, a battle was being fought between giants like George Stephenson, his son Robert and others. A little line of seven miles became the focus of national attention, and then was gone - disappearing as quickly as it was built.
