Preface
This preface must begin with an acknowledgement-to the unknown Army clerk who, in 1947, put me on a list of recruits for training near Darlington. Over the next two years I explored, by train or on foot, most of the Stockton and Darlington Railway system, and visited all the relevant museums. However, a subsequent period of preparation for a lecture brought home to me that although the first few years of the S&DR story were very well documented in published books, later references appeared only as paragraphs in accounts of the North Eastern Railway. Since then some excellent books have appeared on parts of the system, but an account of the whole complex up to the present time has been lacking. I hope this book will help to fill the gap.
In more recent years, much of the S&DR has moved into the realms of industrial archaeology, and my wife and family have patiently accompanied me on motoring expeditions to explore and photograph. The less accessible stretches have had to be walked: is there anywhere less hospitable than the ruins of Burnhill station in a moorland mist? Relics are fast disappearing: the sea of glass fragments from the roof of Barnard Castle station only remained for a short time before the last traces of the buildings were bulldozed. The S&DR house plaques are fewer now than they were, and the newcomer to Crook and Tow Law would need some assistance in visualising what the railway installations there were like.
