Using over 300 pin sharp photographs and informative text, The Golden Age of Yorkshire Railways features many aspects of railway development in Yorkshire prior to the Grouping of railways in 1923 as well as the years afterwards, up to 1948, and the establishment of British Railways. An impressive geographical spread across the region is covered through an outstanding collection of photographs gathered from postcards, original prints, and glass plate negatives. These are paired with well researched captions that will please railway enthusiasts and a wider audience alike. Alongside fabulous images of locomotives these pictures capture social history through the architecture, advertising and fashion.

  • Many railway stations are included, some having long since disappeared from the landscape under the Beeching axe. 
  • Arranged alphabetically, this is a book that can be dipped into at leisure to provide many a happy hour for railway enthusiasts, railway modellers or just anyone interested in the passing local scene.
