This book traces the development of the electric railways in the north-west of England, centred on the cities of Liverpool and Manchester. This is where the story of the electrification of the railways began, with the pioneering Liverpool Overhead Railway, followed by the suburban routes of the Lancashire & Yorkshire and the first ever AC electrification carried out by the Midland Railway. Graeme Gleaves' account covers the rise and fall of the LNER's 1500v DC system and the start of high-speed rail travel with the electrification of the West Coast Main Line, leading to today's Pendolinos, main-line trains and local services, including the Manchester Metrolink.
