No railway closure in the Beeching era was mourned more than that of the Great Central Railway's main line southward from Nottingham. From its cathedral-like edifice at Victoria to the distinctive island platform stations that served towns and villages all the way to London, the Great Central touched the hearts of enthusiasts and the general public alike. This book tells the story in words and pictures of the years just before and after closure, from glorious express trains to heart-rending views as the old line was firstly abandoned and then mercilessly destroyed.
