Prior to the 1923 grouping of railways into the big four companies of the GWR, SR, LMS and LNER, the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway operated services across a huge swathe of Northern England. Their distinctive black and red liveried trains could be seen from Liverpool to Blackpool on the West coast all the way across to Goole and Hull on the East. In between they would pass through Manchester, Burnley, Huddersfield, Leeds, Doncaster and Sheffield. In this fascinating book Barry C. Lane has collected together numerous photos and technical drawings to fully describe every engine known to have operated on the L&YR. Researching the railway has been a life long passion for Barry and it shows. If you remember the L&YR you'll enjoy this book, or if you are two young for that but enjoy watching steam trains I'm sure you'll enjoy it too!
