The Lancashire & Yorkshire RailwayThe title ‘Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway’ was adopted by the Manchester & Leeds Railway in July 1847 following its absorption of a number of other local railways.
Serving the industrial heart of the North West of England and forming the critical link to the mineral wealth of Yorkshire, the L & Y rapidly grew into a complex and progressive railway system, with considerable shipping interests on the Irish and North Seas.
