York to Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale Paperback

Edited by Stephen Chapman

Part of the Railway Memories series


Through nearly 200 photographs and a wealth of other material, "Railway Memories No.19" recalls the railways serving the great Yorkshire seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby as they were in the days of steam.

The first chapter sets the scene by outlining the history and development of these railways, and their decline to the network surviving today, as well as describing the passenger and freight services that operated in the 1950s and since.

Railways featured are York-Scarborough, Scarborough-Whitby, Malton-Whitby, Pickering-Seamer, and the Ryedale branches to Ampleforth, Kirby Moorside and Helmsley.

This book will be of great local interest in such places as Scarborough, Whitby, York, Malton, Pickering, Goathland, Ravenscar, Robin Hood's Bay, Ampleforth, Coxwold, Helmsley, Kirbymoorside and Thornton Dale which are all featured in its 112 pages.
