An Illustrated History of Scunthorpe’s Railways
Longbone, Bryan
ISBN: 1871608511
Irwell Press Clophill, Bedfordshire, England 1996 First Edition
 Soft Cover 76 pages profusely illustrated b/w photos - The greatest and most enduring maybe, of our iron and steel making centres, Scunthorpe - Frodingham grew up because wealth was there to be tapped. The story begins with the South Yorkshire Railway building a line alongside its own canal, reaching for the busy waters of the Trent and Humber. Into the cast come and go a host of characters - ironmasters and land-owning gentry, politicians, buccaneering railway magnates, venal local merchants and above all, the common folk, working 18 hours a day and drinking water brought in tins from miles off. Everyone strains to carve a slice of the untold commercial and mineral wealth laying all around. The thread connecting them all is the railway, from the Great Central to the LNER and British Railways, to the intricate system of industrial lines and locos serving the great works themselves. This small part of North Lincolnshire rose to become the economic powerhouse of the LNE Southern Area and the Eastern Region after it. The railway surrounding Scunthorpe was secure in a monopoly, and relations with the steel men could be fragile. Moreover the railway was ever struggling to keep pace with developments; it could never keep all its customers happy, despite going to the extraordinary lengths of involving itself in clandestine and illegal setting of rates for traffic. It had also to manoeuvre with Parliament - and just one of its endless episodes of twisting and turning was dismissed as 'an act of insanity after the years of agitation to get improved railway facilities. I hear there is great dissatisfaction in Scunthorpe as you may imagine.' Whatever the trials and tribulations of railway working and steel making on the ground, it made a wonderful theatre for the steam locomotive in all its many moods - it really was, Steam and Steel.  New

Racing Trains : 1985 Railway Race to the North
Wilson C David
ISBN: 0750908866
Alan Sutton Publishing Stroud, Glos, England 1995 First Edition
 Hard Cover 162 pages b/w photos - The idea of racing trains is today barely credible, Yet in the heyday of Victorian steam transport, this is precisely what happened first in 1888, and then, most famously in 1895. - The first Race to the North was between day trains from London to Edinburgh in 1888, and the second was between night trains from London to Aberdeen in 1895. The actual 'finishing post' of the latter race was Kinnaber Junction, 38 miles (61 km) south of Aberdeen, where the Caledonian Railway and the North British Railway routes joined- the last section being run on Caledonian-owned track. On the approach to Kinnaber Junction the two routes ran on either side of the Montrose Basin, with trains often racing for the junction within sight of each other - a spectacle widely reported by the journalists who rode on the trains during the height of the races. Great Northern Railway GNR used the 4-2-2 Stirling Single (eight-footer) constructed by Patrick Stirling for their express. GNR Stirling No 668 brought the East Coast express over the 105.5-mile (170 km) track from King's Cross to Grantham in 1 hour 41 minutes with an average speed of 62.7 mph (101 km/h). After engine change in Grantham GNR Stirling No 775 made the 82 miles (132 km) to York in 1 hour 16 minutes, average speed of 64.7 mph (104 km/h). The total distance from London to Edinburgh was covered in 6 hours 19 minutes (for a speed of 63.5 mph, 102.2 km/h) and the extended 523-mile (842 km) distance of London to Aberdeen in 8 hours 40 minutes (average speed 60.4 mph (97.2 km/h), or 51.9 mph (83.5 km/h) for the final section). Two days later, on August 22, 1895, London North Western Railway (LNWR) train with Precedent No. 790 Hardwicke 2-4-0 took 2 hours and 6 minutes for the 141-mile (227 km) run from Crewe to Carlisle, with an average speed of 67.1 mph (108 km/h). A serious derailment at Preston in 1896 resulted in public calls for safety rather than speed. It was also realised that the race trains caused great inconvenience to passengers precisely because of the speed of the journey- instead of arriving at Aberdeen at around 7am (as before) trains were arriving in the early hours of the morning, leaving passengers with an awkward wait on a deserted station for any connecting local trains. Because of this the racing was abandoned in favour of more realistically timetabled services. There followed an agreement on speed limits, which was revoked in 1932.   Very Good
