Joint Operations Around Manchester and in South Yorkshire, is the latest volume in a series of books by Bob Pixton, covering the lines across the Pennines, especially those of the former Great Central.

This volume looks at the joint lines that once served the area from Lancashire to Yorkshire, serving heavy industry and providing an intense passenger service in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The lines and services declined on many of the branch lines and some of the cross country lines by the 1950s, heralding their final demise in the early 1960s, as a result of the Reshaping of British Railways.

Today there are still a few important corridors crossing this area of the north of England, which have become increasingly important in recent times as roads become more congested and bus services are cut back.

About Bob Pixton

Bob Pixton is a retired teacher who lives in Swindon in Wiltshire, he was originally from the Manchester area and has always had an interest in the railways of Lancashire and Yorkshire.


He has been researching and collecting material about the lines that ran across the Pennines for many years, with a view to writing a series of books about the railways that criss crossed this once heavily industrialised part of Britain.


The author is also a railway modeller with an interest in constructing layouts, which have a slant towards freight operation, producing a miniature copy of his favourite areas of railway research, railways that serve industry.
