A HISTORY IN PICTURES

A big thank you to The National Archives who are the source of the majority of the images below. This selection is just the tip of the iceberg - read our guide to visiting the archives to see their wealth of material for yourself.

 

Thanks also go to The Francis Frith Collection, Transport Treasury, Paula Arthur, Armand Toms, Janet Duffy, Ian Dinmore, Brian Oldham, Jo Winkett and Bernard Mills for giving us permission to share their fantastic images. If you know of anyone locally who has their own photographs of the line, we'd love to hear.
