Selby and Goole, Paperback


A journey back to the railways of Selby, Goole and surrounding districts during the 1950s and 1960s.

These were times when Selby was still an important junction, where the East Coast main line from London to Scotland crossed the trans-Pennine route from Hull to Liverpool, when the port of Goole had a maze of railways winding around its docks, when endless freight trains carried vast quantities of coal to Hull and Goole for export, when branch lines wandered across open country serving farms and villages, and when steam locomotive reigned supreme.

Part of the important York-Sheffield line through Church Fenton and Milford to Burton Salmon is also included along with such regular "Railway Memories" features such as detailed introductory text, track layouts, various train operating instructions, anecdotes and recollections.
