Railway Memories No. 12 - Hull and Barnsley Railway
Well-illustrated, this is a survey of the Hull and Barnsley railway system. It includes pictures of the lines and depots in the Hull area, the Wath and Denaby branches and the joint line with the Great Central Railway to Doncaster, as well as the main line from Hull Alexandra Dock to Cudworth and Stairfoot, on the edge of Barnsley. The book turns the clock back to the 1950s when the Hull and Barnsley line was still busy with heavy goods and mineral trains. It recalls the 1960s when it was still business as usual on the western half of the system even though the main line had been cut in half by closure, and when local trip workings still plied their trade along the remaining lines around Hull. Track layouts, operating instructions and personal reminiscences are included.
Softback, 80 pages, black & white photographs
