The Book of the Great Northern - The Main Line - Part Two - Welwyn North to Doncaster


Product Information

ISBN: 9781906919313, 244 Pages. Hardback

With the second book of the pair examining the engineering and operation of the GNR main line from Kings Cross to Doncaster over the years, we turn our attention away from the metropolis towards the countryside. I have not repeated the preface of Part One, but the comments apply equally to Part Two. This is not a detailed history of the GN main line, but an engineering and operational commentary.However, it would not be possible nowadays to write a reflective account of this nature without acknowledging the enormous archive of historical material from the many authors who have already written on this subject and I am happy to do so. As I wrote in Part One, the definitive work was that of Charles H Grinling, "The History of the Great Northern Railway". Then there was the work of such as John Wrottesley, R A H (Bob) Weight, F A S Brown, E A J Neve, W A Tuplin and others, latterly Dr Ben Brooksbank. To all these I give my grateful thanks.
