Nuneaton, Coventry & Leamington Railway documents how the railways linking these two important Warwickshire towns and their environs were faithfully served by steam locomotion for many years. The Nuneaton to Leamington route became an essential artery for the London & North Western Railway (LNWR), and subsequently the London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS), primarily for moving coal from the North Warwickshire coalfields to the South and South West of England. The Nuneaton to Leamington line was originally conceived and built as two routes. A plethora of illustrations reveals the stations, sheds and locomotives of diverse design that contributed to these fascinating railways. With authoritative captions, a sweeping yet detailed picture is painted of a remarkable system in its prime and of its inevitable decline.
