Book description

: From Aberford to Yeadon

Well-known local history author Peter Tuffrey first became familiar with West Yorkshire railway stations when editing and publishing a smaller work on the subject in 1989. Now in 2011, and with the help of the internet, he believes it is time to augment and enlarge this information in a new book.

One remarkable website he stumbled upon and helped him enormously was: www.lostrailwayswestyorkshire.co.uk, run by an army of enthusiasts who have documented: when lines were constructed, where they extended, what they included in terms of track layouts, bridges, signal boxes stations etc, what has happened to them and what remains. He has also used two other sites: www.railwayramblers.org.uk and www.disusedstations. org.uk, both the maintained by tireless and inspired efforts of their various members.

For illustrations Peter has used numerous picture postcards and the archives at the Yorkshire Post Newspapers as well as some noted railway photographers.
