The Yorkshire Lines of the LNWR

Regular price £19.95

Some books come to fruition quickly, but not this one which was well-advanced but unfinished when this Oakwood author of Hillhouse Immortals passed away in 2001. His daughter, Rowena Kidger, and her father’s friend, Dr. Graham Hardy finalised the book to a state of ‘as complete as we could make it’ to Oakwood Press where unfortunately it languished unpublished for many years until under new ownership the project was revived. The LNWR lines featured really are the cross-country artery from Manchester across Lancashire to Huddersfield and then on to Kirkburton or Leeds. Fourteen chapters span the period 1835 to 2000 and the appendices deal with Copley Hill engines, assistant engines, stabling vehicles, tunnel names, and closures.

Softback, 208 pages, black & white photographs, maps

ISBN: 9780853615613
