Durham Railways (Britain's Railways in Old Photographs). Darlington became famous for its railway engineering industry, which was centred on the North Road Shops where the LNER (London & North Eastern Railway) built its locomotives

Durham Railways (Britain's Railways in Old Photographs). Darlington became famous for its railway engineering industry, which was centred on the North Road Shops where the LNER (London & North Eastern Railway) built its locomotives. Production grew steadily and by 1930, 54 locomotives and 4,200 wagons were being built at Darlington every year. Other important industries were also based in and around Darlington. William Kitching's ironmonger's shop in Tubwell Row opened in 1790 and from these humble beginnings grew Whessoe, the international group of companies that became a world leader in engineering.

Ever since the Stockton & Darlington Railway opened in 1825 the north-east of England has been at the heart of the railway system. Charlie Emett, ex-railwayman, author and historian, has collected a fascinating selection of over 250 photographs, all informatively captioned. His compilation takes the reader on a journey from these pioneering beginnings, through the revolutionary age of steam and the diesel era, to the birth of the electric expresses, drawn by the most powerful locomotives ever to run in Britain.

The railway system in Great Britain is the oldest in the world. Main article: History of rail transport in Great Britain. The railways started with the building of local isolated wooden wagonways in 1560s

The railway system in Great Britain is the oldest in the world. Wagonways were built in Britain in the 1560s and soon spread across the country. The first locomotive-hauled public railway opened in 1825. Most of the railway track is managed by Network Rail, which in 2016 had a network of 15,799 kilometres (9,817 mi) of standard-gauge lines, of which 5,331 kilometres (3,313 mi) were electrified. These lines range from single to quadruple track or more. The railways started with the building of local isolated wooden wagonways in 1560s. These wagonways soon spread out across the country.

Ever since the Stockton & Darlington Railway opened in 1825 the north-east of England has been at the heart of the railway system. Charlie Emett, ex-railwayman, author, and historian, has collected a fascinating selection of more than 250 photographs, all informatively captioned. His compilation takes the reader on a journey from these pioneering beginnings, through the revolutionary age of steam and the diesel era, to the birth of the electric expresses, drawn by the most powerful locomotives ever to run in Britain. All County Durham’s branch lines, past and present, are included in this pictorial guide, together with the East Coast main line, while the importance of Darlington’s workshops and Shildon’s wagon works is not forgotten. Famous engines, signaling systems, personalities, and events of the region are all recorded here, offering the reader a comprehensive picture of railway life over the years.
