A nostalgic look back at the railway and shipping operations in the Lancaster, Morecambe and Heysham area.

Coverage begins at Wennington where trains from Leeds were split into Morecambe and Carnforth portions. We then continue along the Midland’s main line through Hornby, Caton, and Halton to Lancaster Green Ayre, Morecambe Promenade and Heysham, before featuring a variety of ships on services to Belfast and the Isle of Man.

The post-1966 route via Carnforth is also followed to the much-changed former Midland Railway outpost at Heysham. This full-colour album will bring back many memories for those who travelled by train to Morecambe for their holidays - or ventured across the Irish Sea from the Port of Heysham.
It is now thirty years since the West Yorkshire Road Car Company’s familiar red and cream buses and coaches disappeared from our roads. This full colour album shows West Yorkshire vehicles in action in the thirty years leading up to the 1989 takeover by Yorkshire Rider.

It contains 205 photographs supported by detailed captions and features locations and street scenes throughout the company’s former operating area, which included route networks in the Harrogate, Bradford, Keighley, Skipton, Ilkley, Otley, Leeds, York and Scarborough areas.

We take another colourful look at the 1960s railway scene in and around Bradford. This collection of evocative images shows the extensive former Lancashire & Yorkshire and Great Northern Railway networks to the south of the city centre.  
A nostalgic look at Bradford’s busy railway network in the 1960s, with many photographs never seen in print before, each with an informative caption. This full colour album covers the former Midland Railway lines to the north of what was once the ‘Wool Capital’ of the world.

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed Bradford & Thornton Railway album will be available from May 2017. This covers the Halifax, Thornton & Keighley Railway, and associated lines, which are seen in full colour for the first time. Evocative images from the 1950s feature passenger services as well as goods and coal traffic in the final years of operations.
In the Victorian era, local railways up and down the country were an essential means of transportation for raw materials, goods and people. Sadly, many of these lines have disappeared, almost without trace.

Among those to fall victim was the former GNR line from Bradford to Thornton. For the first time in full colour, Willowherb Publishing presents a unique collection of images depicting this long lost route.
