GNR 1900 Leeds Branch (Hunslet Railway)
THE GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY NEW BRANCH LINE AND GOODS STATION AT LEEDS.  (1900) It was in the session of 1893 that this branch line, which we shall proceed to describe and illustrate in the present and some succeeding articles, received the sanction of Parliament under the title of the "Hunslet Railway". In the following year, however, by virtue of the additional powers conferred upon the Great Northern Line, arrangements were entered into which ultimately caused it to become the proper..
LNWR 1868 Lime Street Station
The elevation and plan of this hotel, now in course of erection by the London and North-Western Railway Company, are from the designs of Mr. Waterhouse, 8, New Cavendish-street. The contractors for the works, Messrs. Haigh and Co., of Liverpool, are in full operation with the building, which is expected to be finished by January next. The design has been greatly modified from the original plan, so as to admit of the hotel being set back for the widening of Lime-street. A glass roof will be thrown over th..
LNWR 3 compartment composite coach
This model of an early LNWR tri-composite carriage is based on a vehicle which was acquired by the Mawddwy Railway from the LNWR. The vehuicle was photographed around 1900 when passenger services were withdrawn. The photographic evidence gives an excellent idea of the construction of this vehicle. This is a lasercut kit of a historical railway carriage of the mid 1800's, designed and produced in-house by Design3D. The kit is manufactured in MDF and card with clear acrylic glazing.  It is supp..

LSR (Liverpool & Southport Railway) Electrification (1904)
THE ELECTRIFICATION OF THE LIVERPOOL AND SOUTHPORT RAILWAY.  The railway companies of this country have keenly felt the competition which the advent of electric tramways has caused, and have sought means to protect themselves against it. A number of things have been suggested so as while not reducing the speed of the trains, to keep down expenses to such a point as would enable the fares charged to be reduced to the level of, or even below, the small charges made by the tramways. There have been..
MET  - Metropolitan Railway History (1895)
HISTORY OF THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY. Probably few persons among the many hundreds of thousands annually using the Metropolitan Railway are aware that when it was first opened for traffic, in January, 1863, from Bishop's-road to Farringdon-street, it was a broad-gauge line, worked by broad-gauge engines and carriages. As a matter of fact, it was a "mixed gauge" line, being laid with both the 7ft. and the ordinary 4ft. 8¼  in.  gauges, although only broad-gauge rolling stock..
MET - Metropolitan District Railway  (Inner Circle)
THE METROPOLITAN DISTRICT RAILWAY (1866)  The present Metropolitan Railway, extending from Bishop’s-road to Moorgate-street, forms, as is very generally known, but the northern side of an irregular "circle" of underground railways which will surround that part of the metropolis lying between the existing line and the Thames. Of this "inner circle", as it is called, the Metropolitan District Railway will form the southern side, whilst the eastern and western portions wi..
MET - Metropolitan Railway Electrification (1904)
THE ELECTRIFICATION OF THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY (1904) Our Readers will remember the controversy which took plate some three years ago on the question as to the method of electrification to be employed on the systems of the Metropolitan and District Railways. The Hoard of Trade finally decided that direct current of comparatively low tension — from 500 to 600 volts—was to be used on both railways, which were to arrange matters in such a way that the trains of either company could run on the o..
MET - Metropolitan Railway Widened Lines (1868)
THE WIDENING OF THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY (1868) The widening of the Metropolitan Railway between King’s-cross and Farringdon-street stations, with the deviations of the branches to the Great Northern Railway, has been practically completed, and on the 15th of January was formally inspected by Captain Tyler on behalf of the Board of Trade.  A constantly increasing traffic has rendered this extension necessary, and the new lines are intended for the service of the Great Western, Great Northe..
MR - Derby Works 1895
THE MIDLAND RAILWAY COMPANY'S LOCOMOTIVE WORKS AT DERBY. (1895) In presenting to our readers a description of the Midland Railway Works, we feel sure that no apology will be required if we first briefly trace the history and development of this important line. Although nominally dating from May 10th, 1841, the Midland Railway system really may claim to have originated some twelve years prior to this date, when a short line sixteen miles long was constructed under the supervision of Robert Stephenson,..
MR - Dining Cars (1893)
NEW FIRST AND THIRD CLASS DINING CARRIAGES ON THE MIDLAND RAILWAY (1893) The Midland Railway Company, which was the first to allow third-class passengers to travel by all trains, is just about to make further provision for their convenience and comfort. Commencing on Monday, July 3rd, the Midland Company, in conjunction with the Glasgow and South Western Company, will place on the Scotch service additional afternoon expresses, which will run between London (St. Pancras) and Glasgow (St. Enoch), start..
MR - Pullman Cars (1875)
PULLMAN CARS (1875)  In the year 1859 Mr. Pullman constructed the first of the cars which have since made the name of Pullman world-famed, and this car was placed in service on the Chicago and Alton Railway, a line extending from Chicago to St. Louis, some 280 miles in length. Previous to this time sleeping cars had been in use, to a limited extent, upon several American railways, but they were for the most part crude in their arrangements, and ill adapted for meeting the requirements of fatigui..
MR - St. Pancras Station (1867)
St. PANCRAS STATION, MIDLAND RAILWAY EXTENSION (1867) We propose to give a description of the works now in course of execution for this railway, commencing at about two miles from the London terminus, and following the course of the line until we arrive at the St. Pancras station, where the line terminates. The railway is constructed for four lines of way for a considerably further distance than we have named, and at the point from which we started it emerges from under the Hampstead Junction Railway, wh..
MR - Steam Coaches (1904)
STEAM MOTOR COACHES, MIDLAND RAILWAY. (1904) On July 4th the Midland Railway Company put into service the first of the self-propelling steam railway coaches that are to run between Morecambe and Heysham, and in this week’s issue, through the courtesy of Mr. Deeley, the locomotive superintendent, and Mr. Rain, the carnage and wagon superintendent, of that railway, we are able to publish several illustrations and give the leading particulars of one of these vehicles. Two of these coaches have been co..
NER 1905 Darlington Works
NORTH-EASTERN LOCOMOTIVE DARLINGTON WORKS HITHERTO the building of the North-Eastern Railway Company's locomotives has been carried on a.t the Gateshead and Darlington works, but the work of repairing has been carried on chiefly at York. The building of the new erecting shop a.t Darlington, and the re-arrangement and re organisation which have been in progress for some time, together with the employment of more powerful engines for hauling heavier loads, causing fewer engines to be dealt with, decide..
