There is a map at Leyburn on the Wensleydale Railway - I'm fairly sure, comparing it with the picture of the one at York, that it is a new, reduced-scale, version.

Yes, it's one of our 3/4 size ones, Stamfordian. It was very kindly bought for the railway by a benefactor, and they simply couldn't find enough wall space for a full size tiled map!

Re Malcolms earlier posting regarding the possibility of a tiled map at Marylebone I was a bit sceptical about the maps being placed on other railway companies property but have now started to think it is a distinct possibility that there could have been one, as I have just seen a picture of the old NBR station at Berwick which has posterboards for diverse companies such as the GNR, The Midland and the Highland the one omission i'm not surprised at was the NER given the depth of feeling between the NBR and NER.
The NBR had friendly links with the other mentioned companies through business even though the NER was a partner with the GNR and NBR through the ECJS trains and the Forth Bridge old hostilities still remained till a few years after the grouping.

I don't think I am giving away military secrets in revealing that the South of England tile map is at Headley Court near Epsom. Google Walter Cunliffe and you get the house; Google the house and you get the Listing which includes a reference to the tile map.

Nonetheless, I am sure casual visitors are not welcome.

Right chaps, the time has come to discuss another tiled map. On a facebook site I run a chap has reported seeing a tiled map near the booking office at Wooler on the Alnwick and Cornhill line he thinks he may have a photo of it and is going to look so i am not listing it as yet but will book it as provisional as always any help is welcome.

Rowley station, relocated to Beamish, has a full size replica. Rowley originally didn't have one, and is unlikely to have been seen at similar size stations, but it's a very popular exhibit and great to show the extent of the NER network

I find it very hard to believe that Wooler would have a tiled map though Alnwick and Alnmouth may have. All the Alnwick and Cornhill line stations had glazed IN and OUT bricks beside the ticket office windows.

No mention of a tile map at Wooler on the disused-stations.org.uk website, so it's pretty certain to be a replica

Pinza: Yes Alnwick still has one - in the cafe at Barter Books - which is of course in the old station building. Looked huge, so it might be an original?

One of a series of publicity photos. taken for the GCR on 26 October 1907 shows the left hand half of an NER tile map to the right of the person being photographed (see the Getty Images website https://www.gettyimages.com and then enter the reference no. 3275853). This could well have been the second such map to be displayed, the first having been at Kings Cross Station. Both the GNR and GCR had close relationships with the NER, so if one was given one by the NER why not the other, particularly as its station was very new in 1900?

Yes, there are some replica maps to be seen around the country. I have seen 7 to date, but all have a common fault which makes them easily distinguishable from the originals. Full sized replica maps can be seen at Pickering and Rowley (Beamish Museum) Stations and in Barter Books' cafeteria in part of the old Alnwick Station.

Two up-dated maps which do NOT show the North Holderness Light Railway (shown on the originals) but which show the Axholme Joint Railway, the South Yorkshire Joint Railway and the Dearne Valley Railway, and also intermediate station names on the Gosforth to Ponteland line, not shown on the original maps, also exist in the south of England, but are not on general display.
