Having been established as a seaside resort since the seventeenth century, Scarborough was an attractive destination for the new railways of the mid nineteenth century, and the town became part of George Hudson's empire by the late 1840s. However, the line through Scarborough was not the first line to be built in the area - a line had been constructed in the 1830s connecting Whitby with the market town of Pickering. From such developments, routes were established which finally put Filey on the railway map, and several branch lines were built connecting rural outposts with the main lines. This book relates the development of these lines and their lives under the NER, LNER and BR, until their eventual closure under Dr Beeching. All is not lost, however, and the re-establishment of a preserved line between Pickering and Grosmont is also covered along with main line steam into Scarborough, recalling the wonderful days when Scarborough was descended upon by thousands of holidaymakers who would have come to this famous resort by train. Timetables and locoshed allocations give an idea of the locomotive types which operated in this area of North Yorkshire and the sort of service passengers could expect both on the main lines and rural branches, giving as complete a picture as possible.
