This area of Yorkshire's West Riding was one of the parts of Britain most affected by the Industrial Revolution and its major towns are still synonymous with manufacturing, mining and the textile industry. The area was densely populated so demand for freight and passenger railway services was immense, resulting in many lines. The network has been cut back hugely in the years since the end of steam, but the glory days are recalled in this book which features 135 period photographs.

This was first published in 1914 and was immediately recognised as a standard work. Its publication did much to raise the quality of railway history as a whole. This edition has an introduction by K Hoole, the modern authority on the history of the railways of north-east England. Hoole states that in any work with historical content concerning the North Eastern Railway the first acknowledgement must always be made to W.W. Tomlinson's monumental work. This book is still a necessity for anyone interested in north-eastern England.
