Synopsis

Railways and the Dales by David Joy and Gavin Morrison.

A unique collaboration by two veteran recorders of the railway scene in words and pictures. Since 1967, David Joy has written over 50 books on railways and numerous aspects of the Yorkshire Dales. Gavin Morrison, one of Britain’s most experienced railway photographers, has compiled more than 60 books and has gained the highest reputation for the quality of his work.

They decided to celebrate four decades of working together in a book that is both informative and richly illustrated. Gavin first selected more than 150 of his favourite photographs depicting lines serving the Dales. David then wrote an evocative text emphasising how they have changed from the late 1950s through to the present day.

The result is a nostalgic and evocative depiction of railways in a glorious corner of what has become known as ‘God’s Own County’. Coverage includes the legendary Settle to Carlisle railway, as well as many other lines ranging from forgotten branches in Nidderdale and Wensleydale through to electrified routes carrying commuters into the heart of Leeds.
