This is a new volume in Noel Coates' LYR Miscellany series. It records the history of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway's lines and property in the British Railways period from 1947 to 1966, an era which saw a gradual reduction in the numbers of L&Y designed locos and stock, but those that remained carried an amazing variety of liveries and insignia. This 192 page hardback book contains 550 photographs reproduced to the Society's usual high standard, each with a detailed caption providing context and historical detail.
This is a fascinating look at the L&Y's locos and infrastructure before the closures and contractions began in earnest.
Hardback, 192 pages, 550 photographs
