Railways Around York and the Vale (Transport Treasury)

1 In Stock

Drawing on steam era images taken from the Transport Treasury Collection, this book takes the railway epicentre of York as its primary theme but also uses it as a jumping off point to visit routes which radiated from its heart. The latter include the lines to Thirsk, Malton, Market Weighton, Selby, Church Fenton and Harrogate together with a selection of photographs taken at various locations en route.

Many of the photographs were taken during the 1950s when steam remained largely unchallenged on passenger and goods services throughout the area. Adding a dash of extra flavour to this already rich and diverse collection a sprinkling of pre-1923, pre-1948 and 1960s scenes have also been included within the mix.

Photographs are presented in one or two-per-page format, with captions accompanying each image. A short introduction to the railways of the Vale of York during the steam era is also included. Hardback. 80 pages.
