Brand New Book
From the front inside fly leaf: Manvers Main and Bamburgh Main were sister collieries, sunk by The Manvers Main Collieries Ltd. Located in the heart of the South Yorkshire coalfield, they were surrounded by main line railways and connected by a private branch line. This book describes and illustrates the colliery railways and their privately-owned locomotives, of standard and narrow gauges, steam diesel and electric. Both pits are now closed and the sites cleared, but the book's 169 photographs take us back to the heyday of industrial railways...
