The Hull and Barnsley Railway
- The Hull and Barnsley Railway
- Volume 1
- The Hull & Barnsley Railway had an independent operating existence of over 37 years but in that time it played a leading part in the history of the railways of Hull. During the years in which it was being planned and later when open for traffic, it aroused strong passions on Humberside - and further afield - as it struggled to reach worthwhile objectives in the West Riding.
- It was a line notable for its engineering difficulties - deep cuttings, long tunnels and many bridges - and its sturdy, characteristic Stirling locomotives could be recognised at a glance. It was a friendly line: the staff knew each other and also gave every attention to their customers. Eventually it was of course swallowed up by the LNER and BR and most of it has been closed, although many of the earthworks and bridges remain as silent monuments to a great little railway.
- This first volume of a two volume work is a by a panel of authors, each of whom has made a long study of the Hull & Barnsley, both in the various offices where records of the railway can be found, and out on the line, every inch of which has been covered by one member or another.
