Engineers Line Diagrams

Line Diagrams of the North Eastern Railway

These diagrammatical plans portray a branch line or group of lines in a given area of the North Eastern Railway. Drawn as a strip map the diagrams show all the features on or connected to the main running lines including platforms, signal boxes,  junctions, station & private siding connections to the main line, all referenced against the mileage. All viaducts, tunnels and bridges are shown in outline plan and elevation together with the materials used in their construction. Whilst the majority of the sheets are undated it is thought that line diagrams originate in the late NER period. Some sheets are replacements dated in the 1920s no doubt engineering alterations caused individual sheets to be amended or redrawn. Though many signals and disc signals are shown alterations and removals did take place as locations closed and traffic reduced.
