Glossary Results for Word "Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway (LYR)"
|Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway (LYR)||Incorporated in 1864. This line, opened in 1847, provided an outstanding example of a local railway developing into a revenue earner. Its earnings were almost as much as those of the Great Eastern and Great Northern railways; both of which had more than double the Lancashire and Yorkshire’s 600 miles of route. It was merged with the London and North Western Railway in 1921.|
