Out Now on CD
Few people seem to know that the Leicester to Swannington Railway was one of the oldest railways in the world. This new publication, the work of many authors under the editorship of LIHS member Keith Drury, brings together a wealth of material, including hundreds of previously unpublished photographs. It includes all the new material relating to the railway system between Leicester and Swannington which has been found by our Society over recent years, including all the operations and companies associated with it,
We’ve designated it as the ‘compendium’ as it holds everything we’ve found – an eclectic mix not to be missed! And we hope there will be more to come. There’s a whole Appendix tantalisingly entitled ‘Untapped Resources’ still to be explored!
