Great Northern Outpost: Volume 3 – Faded Glory

by Alan Whitaker and Jan Rapacz

Publisher’s Notes:

The Bradford, Queensbury, Halifax, Thornton & Keighley Lines
The spectacularly engineered ‘Queensbury Lines’ network is revisited in the third volume of the acclaimed Great Northern Outpost series of full colour albums. This is a book of memories, recognition and remembrance – not just for the railway network it features, but also for those who battled through hostile terrain to build it and for those who then faced the often-difficult challenges of operating it.
Rare and evocative images – most published for the first time – feature goods and coal traffic in the final years of operations when the sad decline of a once magnificent railway undertaking was clear for all to see.
