The Great Eastern Railway In South Essex: A Definitive History is the history of the Great Eastern’s lines from Shenfield to Southend, Wickford to Southminster and Woodham Ferrers to Maldon including their ancestor. It is the only comprehensive history of all three lines and was researched using both previously published and unpublished material. The history covers not only the history of the lines in question but also a sample of services from the opening of them to the present day, the motive power that was and is used on them and a topographical description of them. The book is intended to appeal to wide audience: in particular those with an interest in the local history of the area served by the lines, those interested in the history of Essex and railway enthusiasts interested in the railways of the eastern counties in general and the Great Eastern Railway in particular.

As well as the index, a chronology of important dates, station histories and mileages adds to a thoroughly good read.

A curious and interesting book for lovers of the Railway.

As intimated, anyone considering making a model of any of the lines described will find this an invaluable work of reference, or anyone considering models of any part of the ex-GE system. As usual with these histories, it's what's been lost forever in terms of the railway's original infrastructure which pulls at the heart strings. Recommended.
