Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway

The L&YR was incorporated in 1847; as with all the major railways it was the result of amalgamations, in this instance the Manchester and Leeds Railway which in 1859 joined the East Lancashire Railway to form the L&YR. Its lines covered the two counties, and served amongst others Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Preston, Doncaster and Goole.

In 1922 the L&YR was combined with the LNWR, the Midland, and others, in the LMSR.
