East Yorkshire Railway Stations is Peter Tuffrey's last book in the Yorkshire Stations series which began over a year ago, providing an A to Z list of railway stations in the area. A fair proportion of East Yorkshire stations were designed by G. T. Andrews, and we see some of the architect's more ambitious designs here, particularly when looking at Stamford Bridge and Nafferton stations. Some have even become listed buildings affording future generations a glimpse into the splendour of Victorian railway station architecture. A sizeable batch of pictures was provided by Alan Young and Nick Catford - two stalwarts of the Disused Stations website. These include many taken by the late John Mann. Naturally, stations were lost with Beeching's closure of branch lines and their fate then became uncertain. Some have survived intact, others been altered sensitively or rendered completely unrecognisable, and the remainder have been lost completely and their sites redeveloped. In this book numbering over 220 images we see them illustrated in both their glory and their decline.
