Pilling Pig- A History of Garstang & Knott End Railway


The book covers the whole history of this charismatic little line, from its independent days under the GKER and later the KER, through to the Grouping and then onward to nationalisation and up to closure of the final section in 1965. There are numerous illustrations, with a wide range of maps showing the development of the stations, together with drawings of a selection of the locomotives, rolling stock and structures. There are also many hitherto unpublished photographs of the line from a wide range of sources. As well as covering the general history of the railway, there are separate detailed chapters on the infrastructure and signalling, the goods and passenger services, the locomotives and rolling stock and finally the Preesall salt industry.
