1 In Stock

The latter years of the twentieth century saw considerable changes to the railways of County Durham, including the electrification of the East Coast Main Line, the demise of the coal industry and the introduction of modern rolling stock. In this book, author Richard Allen looks at how the railways scene in this part of North East England changed during that time.

Looks at the period from the late 1980s through to the early years of the new millennium. The book is divided into chapters, each covering a subject or area:

  • The East Coast Main Line
  • Darlington to Thornaby
  • Durham Coast Line and the Stillington Branch
  • Leamside Line
  • Sunderland Area, South Hylton and on to Gateshead
  • Jarrow and Sout Shields
  • Bishop Auckland and Weardale
  • Raisby Hill

Each chapter consists of a page or two of text and a series of colour photographs taken during the period covered. 96 pages.
