The West Coast Main Line, which runs from London Euston to Glasgow Central with branches to Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool, has historically been Britain’s most important trunk route, giving it a rich and interesting history, not just in terms of motive power and rolling stock, but also when considering the politics of its construction and operation. This book gives a flavour of the many varieties of locomotives and other rolling stock that have operated over the West Coast Main Line, including details of its creation and operation. Utilising maps and drawings, useful information on line speeds and gradients is also provided. With over 110 images, this volume gives an all-encompassing history of locomotive haulage on the West Coast Main Line.

"This book will undoubtedly find a place on the shelves of many who have spent hours, day and night, at Temple Meads or Parkway."

The Railway Correspondence and Travel Society, The Railway Observer - March 2023
