Dalesman published a wide range of informative booklets dealing with railways in the North and in particular in Yorkshire.

Their publications can be conveniently divided into two, first the familiar standard paperbacks in their predominately black covers, and secondly the more substantial landscape format paperbacks.   

"Standard" Paperbacks

Note that the colour on the covers of these paperbacks does not wear particularly well.  The description "superficial wear to the covers" is therefore more common than I would like, even though I discard a significant proportion of the copies that come in.
