The Great Eastern Railway in South Essex : A Definitive History, Hardback Book

The Great Eastern Railway in South Essex : A Definitive History Hardback


The Great Eastern Railway In South Essex: A Definitive History is the history of the Great Eastern's lines from Shenfield to Southend, Wickford to Southminster and Woodham Ferrers to Maldon including their ancestor.

It is the only comprehensive history of all three lines and was researched using both previously published and unpublished material.

The history covers not only the history of the lines in question but also a sample of services from the opening of them to the present day, the motive power that was and is used on them and a topographical description of them.

The book is intended to appeal to wide audience: in particular those with an interest in the local history of the area served by the lines, those interested in the history of Essex and railway enthusiasts interested in the railways of the eastern counties in general and the Great Eastern Railway in particular.
