I do know that there is also a small book about 6x 8 fold out with the northern area NER map. A signalman freind of mine rescued it, some time in the 1980's I photocopied it, it will be around somewhere. I moved house last year so it could be anywhere it also had some of the colliery wagonways on it. If anyone wants info on the colliery wagonways I strongly recomend "Industrial railways of Durham" by Colin mountford and Les Charlton, long out of print I recently bought a copy via Amazon this is a must have book for the early railways of the North East and does include maps

Hi as mentioned on page 3 of this thread please find enclosed picture of the map found at a military installation in the South East.
Sorry chaps i have been asked to remove the map due to sensitive information adjoining it. Picture now on display has been passed by the censor.

The new tiled map at Pickering is now complete, and magnificent it is too. It's a great credit to Craven Dunnill, the makers, Peter Brumby and Ray Sowerby, the tiler and his erstwhile apprentice, to the donors who paid for it, and to the unknown person who drew the original design in 1900. It is, at the moment, attracting slightly more attention than the steam locos in Pickering station.....
I've attached - I hope - a few photos of it being erected.

Looking extremely good Eden, lets hope operating companies on todays network install replicas to replace lost,damaged and never were maps. I should have thought the publicity might do them the world of good.

That'd be nice.
Assuming that they'll let us past the new dalek-lookalike ticket gate excrescences to see them, though.......!
Cynical?

The York one is outside what was the Station Master's Office, hard to believe that it's the same place!

Another station has now got a map although strictly speaking, as my house ceased to be a station in 1850, it never was a NER station.
I have finally got round to putting up the map I had made last year, it is half size and was made to fit behind the cooker as a splashback, unfortunately I had to leave the bottom row off to make it fit. once I get it grouted and the decorating done it should look ok

No the N is there, its just lost in the reflection. I have noticed one mistake though, and that is the Alnwick branch which is shown as leaving the Cornhill branch from "Alnwick Jct" about 11/2 miles from the town, whereas the real layout was the Cornhill line diverging from the Alnwick branch immediately beyond the station throat.
