Well-known local history author Peter Tuffrey first became familiar with West Yorkshire railway stations when editing and publishing a smaller work on the subject in 1989. Now in 2011, and with the help of the internet, he believes it is time to augment and enlarge this information in a new book. One remarkable website he stumbled upon during his research and which helped him enormously was www.lostrailwayswestyorkshire.co.uk, run by an army of enthusiasts who have documented when lines were constructed, where they extended, what they included in terms of track layouts, bridges, signal boxes, stations etc., what has happened to them and what remains. He has also used two other sites: www.railwayramblers.org.uk and www.disused-stations.org.uk, both of which are maintained by the tireless and inspiring efforts of their various members. For illustrations Peter has used numerous picture postcards and the archives at the Yorkshire Post newspapers, as well as some noted railway photographers. This is the second of Peter's works on Yorkshire railway stations, as earlier in the year he produced a similar book on South Yorkshire railway stations.
