Geocache Description:

08 August 2022, 09:00 - 10:00

Come and celebrate SideTracked Week 15th Anniversary at the published cordinates from 9am until 10am on Monday 8th August 2022.

Look for the logo and logbook.

At 5.30am on June 25, 1877, the first train left the new York Railway Station, bound for Scarborough across the specially altered railway bridge. The station took 3 years to construct and was the largest in Britain, confirming the city’s status at the heart of the network.

It was designed by the North Eastern Railway’s architect Thomas Prosser.  The 800ft-long train-shed roof, held 42ft above the platforms by iron columns, was widely admired.  The whole station is built on a curve, making the architecture all the more impressive.  It was called 'a monument to extravagence'.

By 1910 about 350 trains a day were running through the station.
