'Stations and Sidings Diagrams (The White Prints)'

The North Eastern Railway Engineer's Department produced these Diagrams for almost every location on the system showing the track layout, related railway buildings and roadways around that location with a table giving the lengths of each siding and all other tracks except the running lines. The earliest example in the collection is dated May 1903, early Diagrams usually depicted a single location per sheet, later ones, tended to contain several neighbouring locations on a single foldout sheet. These diagrams (also called White Prints) were approximately to scale until the Second World War when a more schematic drawing style was introduced by the LNER.
