About this Item

First edition, tall quarto 296 pages illustrated with colour and black & white photographs and drawings. Very good pictorial laminated boards, Slightly sunned to spine. No inscriptions. "This volume picks up the story of North Eastern Railway architecture at the start of 1877, when William Bell began his almost forty year stint as architect, and follows it through the LNER and British Railway periods down to 1995, when the York railway architects office was disbanded, in the run up to railway privatisation. The Bell period saw many ambitious new buildings, such as the stations at Darlington Bank Top and Tynemouth, a considerable enlargement of the companys workshops, and some fine office buildings, as well as a wide range of small stations and other works. An outside architect, Horace Field, was called on for a new headquarters in York and an office in London, both of considerable quality. This volume also looks at some building types which have not received much recognition - such as the railways stables and housing. The last three chapters show how railway architecture evolved and adapted to a very different world from that in which the NERs buildings were conceived. As in the earlier volumes, this book sheds new light on the personalities involved, and is fully referenced to enable the reader to pursue the story further or in more detail.".
