144 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, floor plans, elevations. "It is almost impossible to describe a typical LNER country station - the nearest it is possible to come is to say that somewhere like Otterington was one, although it was certainly not typical. The problem of finding a common strain of styles arises from the diversity of the LNER's consituents, and its adoption of a policy of decentralised management. In addition to this, the relative poverty of the company mitigated against renewal and rebuilding. (This book) is structured along the lines of these constituent companies and, with the aid of over 170 photographs and 20 line drawings, (the author) relates the histories and unifying features of the many varied stations and branches in the LNER's area of operations." Light waviness to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing, soft crease across bottom edge of rear panel, very small dint on rear hinge.
