Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway Company was formed in 1847 by an amalgamation of several other railway companies. Competition between different companies was intense and much quibbling about the sharing of lines produced an alliance in 1858 with the Great Northern Railway Company. The Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway Company eventually became the Great Central Railway Company.
