RH036 The Eastern Union Railway

  • RH036  The Eastern Union Railway

NEW JANUARY 2016. This is the book 'The Eastern Union Railway' by H F Hilton, published by the LNER in 1946 to mark the centenary of its opening.

The Ipswich-based company built a line which formed an end-on junction at Colchester with the ECR's line in order to provide access to London. They were also behind the construction of the line from Ipswich through Needham Market and Stowmarket to Bury St Edmunds, followed by an extension from Haughley Junction via Diss to Norwich Victoria. Two branches which formed part of the EUR were those from Bentley to Hadleigh and from Marks Tey to Sudbury.

The book covers all of these in three chapters entitled Before the Opening, Progress, and Extensions and Amalgamation. They are well illustrated with numerous sketches and etchings, two maps and nineteen photographs. The final page in the book is Appendix A, listing all the relevant Acts of Parliament.  Appendix B (profile of gradients), C (locomotives of the EUR) and D (the timetables and fares for Bury, Ipswich, Colchester and London and for the Hadleigh branch, dated 1 June 1848) were on separate folded inserts at the back of the book and are included in this word-searchable file.
