Your choice of delivery:

The two branches developed to serve holidaymakers and commuters, plus local freight needs. Thus we witness a variety of rolling stock.

Surprisingly, we see the coast line from the air. There is also ‘mail by rail by sail’ and there is much about Hull’s eastern docks.

 

Reviews:

'The long-anticipated Middleton-style treatment of every station shows how impressive the Hornsea terminus once was with its overall roof.... There is also an account of the isolated Spurn Head Railway, which between 1915 and 1952 strengthened the defence of the Humber Estuary... Another good Middleton effort.'
(Steam World, Issue 383, May 2019)
