In the usual Railway Memories style, this bumper book is the biggest yet in the series. It takes us back to a time when Yorkshire's pre-1974 East Riding was served by a comprehensive railway network. The book starts with text describing the railways' growth, their place in the varied landscape, their passenger and freight services including coverage of the countless steam-hauled summer Saturday expresses going to Butlins' holiday camp at Filey, and the railways' decline, largely at the hand of Doctor Beeching, to a point where only those around the perimeter survive. Along with the 286 photographs including those on the colour cover, is a wealth of operating data, track plans, memories and anecdotes. This book does not include Hull which although in East Yorkshire is not in the East Riding.
