Product description

An account of the origins, characteristics and contribution of a railway (Settle and Carlisle) to the landscape; together with an attempt to evaluate its past and present influence on the area through which it passes. A significant and serious look at the Settle and Carlisle branch of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway by distinguished railway historian, David Jenkinson. In this groundbreaking work, the author examined not just the railway but the surrounding countryside and examines the economic and social effect the railway had on its neighbours. In precise and accessible prose, he uncovered the connections. Illustrated with numerous black and white photographs as well as maps, statistical charts of all sorts (including agricultural and mineral), station plans, the parish map, lists of passenger bookings and takings, total freight tonnage, shed allocations, train formations, coaching stock and motive power. Photographs, tables, line drawings, including drawings and dimensions for S&C buildings and track plans. Index. Bibliography. Laminated pictorial boards. Ex libris with usual stamps and labels. Good clean copy. Small annotation on endpaper
