Lost Railways of Essex

About this book

In March 1843 rural Essex moved into the railway age when the first passenger trains began to run between London Shoreditch and Colchester.  More schemes quickly followed, connecting the Capital with outlying areas.

Many of them are still with us today as busy commuter lines. However, with competition from motorised transport there were inevitable closures. This well written and excellently researched book brings to life the history of Essex's railways. Modern photographs accompany those from earlier times, together with specially drawn maps.
