In Yorkshire Railways: From the Yorkshire Post Archives acclaimed local historian Peter Tuffrey has hand-picked a unique collection of photographs that beautifully capture Yorkshire’s proud railway heritage. The images have been expertly enhanced from the glass plate originals, revealing life on the railways, especially the days of steam, in astounding clarity. There are pictures of locomotives, stations, sheds, works, and staff, at times of commercial and industrial triumph, in the midst of decline, at the scenes of tragic accidents, and in loving preservation. Peter Tuffrey has matched the diligence of the Yorkshire Post photographers with his research in libraries and a host of newspaper archives. As well as being informative, his captions highlight the eccentric and unusual aspects hidden within each photograph. The combined result provides a fascinating window into Yorkshire’s railways.
