-

DAVID MATHER, originally from Bolton, Lancashire, where his early interests in railways centred on his home shed, coded 26C later 9 K and the nearby West Coast Main Line, which he documented until the end of steam in 1968.

The Railways of York was shortlisted for the Ian Allan railway book of the year award, Ian Allan writing the foreward for the authors first book, Running Out of Steam.
