Book Of The Great Northern (The) Part One: Kings Cross to Welwyn Garden City

by Peter J Coster

A really good read, that is packed with good photos, detailed maps, and line drawings as you would expect, but not necessarily as detailed as some modelers would like. It would not be possible to do this without it being a really weighty tome. It is deliberately limited in its coverage of the first part of the Main Line to enable a focus on more detail and has a partner Book 2 for the line further north. For those who want a more detailed overview of this part of the railway system, it would be a book to grace your shelves and also be a useful information source.

It is not cheap, is currently out of print, retains its value on the secondhand market, and is usually available online, but its presence is intermittent.
