absorbed Into The London Midland & Scottish Railway In Early 1923, The Midland Railway Was One Of Those Companies Which Had Put Its Unmistakable Stamp On So Much That It Owned, That Even In The 1950s And 1960s There Were Still Many Signs In Evidence.
for The First Time In Colour, This Title Portrays Many Of The Former Midland Railway Routes As They Were Seen By The Dedicated Photographers Who Have Generously Provided The Material Which Makes Up The Contents Of This Book.
set Out Geographically In Three Basic Sections, The Title Follows The Routes From London St Pancras To Derby, Bristol-derby And Derby-carlisle Via Sheffield, Leeds, Bradford And Skipton. Centred At Derby, The Midland
railway Had Developed A Small Engine Policy. Despite Supplying The Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway With '7f' 2-8-0s The Midland Used Their Well Tried And Tested Range Of 0-6-0s For Freight Workings With Nothing Larger Than 4-4-0s For Passenger Duties.
following The Formation Of The Lms, There Was A Period Of Slow Consolidation And It Took Six Or Seven Years Before The Old Distinctive Mr Livery Had Totally Disappeared. Such Was The Influence Of Derby After The Grouping That The Mass Production Of Class 4f 0-6-0s Continued Until The Voices Of The Various Operating Departments Were Eventually Heard. Following The Introduction Of The Ill-designed Lms Beyer-garratt Class By Fowler In 1927, A More Organised Response To Motive Power Requirements Began To Emerge. For Express And Mixed Traffic Duties, Stanier Introduced The Jubilee' And Class 5 4-6-0s. The Heterogeneous Collection Of Small Tank Locomotives Was Gradually Replaced By More Standardised 2-6-2 And 2-6-4 Tank Locomotives And For Heavy Freight Duties, Stanier Introduced The Class 8f 2-8-0s. It Was This Mixture Of Motive Power, And The New Br Standard Classes That Was To Be Found On The Former Midland Routes In The 1950s And 1960s. Many Examples Of These Classes Are Illustrated In This Title And Where Appropriate, Their Activities After Leaving Former Mr Lines Are Described.
