Product description

Product Description

The North Staffordshire Railway was established in 1840, and grew to become a profitable network - linking with the larger railway companies around it. It responded to public needs, creating a loop line through the heart of the Potteries, and growing and adding stations as suburbs of towns developed.On the goods side, it expanded to take advantage of the wealth of local mineral resources and carried the finished products of local industry. Its sturdy development beat off competition from other companies to access these resources, and its taking over of the local canal system added to its lucrative traffic. It had a character all its own, and people were proud to work for the Knotty. The amalgamation with the LMS in1923 led to the rapid disappearance of its own locomotives, rolling stock and various loco sheds and works. But its unique spirit has ensured it a place in the railway history - and in the hearts of the people of North Staffordshire. Here we tell the story of the NSR, using interviews with historians - and with Knotty men who can still recall the pre-grouping days, Rare archive film of trains working NSR lines, photographs and memorabilia all help to tell the story of this unique railway.
