Great Northern Outpost – Volume 3

Great Northern Outpost – Volume 3: Faded Glory

Halifax and Keighley were true Great Northern outposts linked to Bradford by some of the most spectacularly engineered railway infrastructure in the country and, although this book only shows its decline, there are still defiant hints of its former glory. The spectacularly engineered ‘Queensbury Lines’ network is revisited in the third volume of the acclaimed Great Northern Outpost series of full colour albums and covers the Halifax & Ovenden, Bradford & Thornton, and the Halifax, Thornton & Keighley Railways and their associated branches..

This is a book of memories, recognition and remembrance, is 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.
