Railway People of Skipton by Malcolm & Tom Jarvis

Price: £10.00

The Railway People of Skipton is an emotive book that shows how a small Yorkshire town has supplied a rich continuous seam of skilled, dedicated men and women, to maintain its importance. It’s a compilation of people from many walks of life who trained, operated, managed and maintained Skipton’s passenger and railfreight business. The book is full of anecdotes and personal details from the early days of steam to the Beeching closures and the death of steam locomotion.
