Fascinating history of Sebastian Meyer, an entrepreneur involved in the creation and operation of a network of small railway lines in the northeast of England from the 1880s onward. Among the dozen or so lines that Meyer oversaw were the Deane Valley, Isle of Axholme, North Lindsey and North Sunderland. This study provides a fully rounded portrait of Meyer and his circle of friends: how they obtained their financing and necessary legislation, their often stormy relations with larger companies and their uphill struggles to fend of bankruptcy. Meyer also found time to play an active role in otter businesses and in civic affairs so the book provides a grounded portrait of British social and railway history. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With maps. 112 pages with index.
