Product Description

Publisher: Haynes

Author: David Wragg

Renowned for its express Mallard setting a world speed record (126mph) for steam locomotives that endures to this day, the LNER was the second largest of the 'Big Four' companies to emerge from the 1923 grouping and also the most diverse, with the express trains from King's Cross balanced by an intensive suburban and commuter service from Liverpool Street and a high dependence on freight. Noted for its cautious board and thrifty management, the LNER gained a reputation for being poor but honest. This authoritative new book, in series with LMS Handbook, Southern Railway Handbook and GWR Handbook, provides highly detailed reference information about the LNER. (hb)
