LNER Passenger Trains and Formations Volume II 1923-1968

Details

This book follows on from the authors' previous successful volume which focused on the principal services operated by the LNER and its successor, the Eastern Region of British Railways. Many of the secondary services discussed in this volume declined over time and the sometimes eclectic range of rolling stock seen on these workings in the steam era is often overlooked today. The variety of traffic they had to convey added to the wide range of vehicles that could be seen on these services. This could include passengers' luggage in advance, mail, parcels and newspapers along with types of perishable traffic such as fruit, fish and milk. In addition to scheduled services, special trains were a regular feature of the Working Timetables. To highlight a few of these, trains were provided to cater for itinerant theatrical companies and excursions of all types to many destinations were frequently promoted by the railway operators to enhance revenue.
