Talk of railways in the North York Moors, brings to mind images of preserved steam trains travelling through beautiful countryside. The well informed will know that there was once a connection to Whitby on the East coast, while the even better informed will be aware that from the mid nineteenth century, a line following almost the entire length of the longest salmon river on the Eastern side of England - This is the Esk Valley Line. Now a regular commercial service between Whitby and Middlesbrough, the line is a feast for the eyes of the traveller, with breathtaking and varied scenery augmented by the wealth of history in the picturesque towns and villages through which it passes. This delightful combination prompted the author to write a guide for the use of both regular travellers and visitors alike, with the aim of providing a comprehensive guide to what may be viewed from the carriage window. In addition he includes the historic story of how and why the line came into being. Well researched and written with attention to detail, by an enthusiast who still lives close to the line at Whitby.

This book is as much a must for the lovers of railways, folklore and local history, as for the day visitor seeking a memento of a delightful and memorable journey.
