At Elsecar Heritage Railway we use the name “The Coalfield Line” to celebrate and reflect on the coal mining heritage of our route and its environs. The railway connects the sites of several coal mines, from Elsecar to Cortonwood and reflects a period of history stretching from the creation of Earl Fitzwilliam’s iron and coal empire, through nationalisation of the mining industry, to the demise of local coal mining in the 1980s.
