Government Announce Yorkshire Rail Schemes That Could ‘Reverse Beeching’ Funding

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Yorkshire Post.

Yorkshire appears to be in favour of the schemes in their area.

As in the last round, Yorkshire got a grant for Sheffield and Chesterfield via Barrow Hill, that I wrote about in Reinstatement Of The Barrow Hill Line Between Sheffield And Chesterfield, the county is not doing badly.

But then it has a lot of area and disused coal and industrial railways.

  1. While there are various maps online regarding the routes closed in the Beeching Cuts, what comprehensive book would you or anyone else recommend that goes into the specifics?

  2. No mention of the Hornsea to Hull line. It was well used before Beeching closed it, particularly in the summer, but he chose to look only at traffic in January.

  3. I suspect, there’s been a bit of filtering by someone, who knows about building and maintaining railways. Perhaps, if it was suggested it was filed under Impossible or Too Difficult!
