  • Information


With 187 top quality, mainly 1950s, photographs and eleven drawings, "Railway Memories No.18" lavishly illustrates the diverse railways that once wove their way around the hills, dales and spectacular coastline of Cleveland, Yorkshire's north east corner.

As well as the busy line threading its way through the mass of iron, steel and chemical plants along the south bank of the Tees from Thornaby to Middlesbrough and the seaside resorts of Redcar and Saltburn, this new book also recalls the four different routes that once linked Teesside with Whitby, taking us to such places as Guisborough, Stokesley, Skinningrove, the Esk Valley and Whitby itself. "Railway Memories No.18" not only shows us the steam trains that once served both heavy industry and rural communities but features stations, depots, signal boxes and a wealth of operational information.

It includes detailed introductory text, track layouts and operating instructions.
