The fourth volume in the regional series of books examining the industrial locomotives and railways of England, Wales and Scotland, this volume covers the counties of Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Lincolnshire. It may be assumed that this region was not industrialised on a particularly broad scale, but, on the contrary, there are many surprises to be found hidden within these page. Certainly the broadening Thames Estuary stretching east from Purfleet, the point of the crossing of the Queen Elizabeth Bridge over the River Thames, saw much industrial development along its banks. The significance of the Barrington Cement Works in Cambridgeshire having been the last industrial quarry railway system to survive in the country, with its own independent light railway, is explored here in great detail. Here, Edgar offers an insight into a region whose rich railway history is often underappreciated.
