RH025 Influences of railways of the eastern counties on the development of the GNR - Part 2

  • RH025  Influences of railways of the eastern counties on the development of the GNR - Part 2

NEW SEPTEMBER 2014.  These are extracts from the 1903 edition of Charles Grinling's History of the Great Northern Railway.  He was the son of William Grinling, the GNR's Accountant, and he worked in his father's department at headquarters.  He had access to many of the company's records and so may be relied on. 

Although he presents his history in strict chronological order, the account is much more than a list of happenings and dates: he describes real people, living in the real world of the time.

This is Part 2 of those extracts, covering the GER period from 1863 to 1902. (Part 1 is File RH024.) There was competition between the two railways, leading to the formation of the M&GN; but there was also co-operation, as the GN&GE Joint line finally became reality.

The text from the book is unaltered, but has been put into more modern font and is fully word-searchable.
