From Tilbury to Tyneside by Robert N. Forsythe
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The third volume in Robert Forsythe's series looking at Britain's railway shipping services through their publicity. The Eastern Region was a part of British Railways and thereby connected with railway owned shipping at Tilbury, Harwich and in the Humber. The weight of much that is shown reflects this direct railway involvement and considers the heyday of the actual "Eastern Region". The wealth of material illustrated gives a flavour of travelling by railway ferry from the early twentieth century to the present day. As well as the railway ships, Robert Forsythe looks at the connecting Fred Olsen, General Steam Navigation Co., DFDS and Tor Line services too. Concentrating on the railway-owned ports of Tilbury, Harwich, Felixstowe, Immingham and Hull, the book also looks at Newcastle and Grimsby too. Earlier books in the series are To Western Scottish Waters and Irish Sea Shipping Publicised.
