LMS Route: Nuneaton to Leamington
The Nuneaton to Leamington route became an essential artery for
the LNWR, and subsequently the LMS, primarily for moving coal from the North
Warwickshire coal fields to the South and South West of England. It was
important because it avoided the bottleneck of the Birmingham to Euston line as
traffic staying on LNWR metals could proceed via Daventry or even return to
Rugby to proceed onwards via other secondary routes.
However whilst we have treated the Nuneaton to Leamington line
as one route it was originally conceived and built as two routes. Whilst we
have presented all of the stations on the Nuneaton to Leamington route (see
below) the history of the two lines has been recorded separately.
