John Waddells Railway

More colloquially known as Paddy Waddell, John Waddell undertook other projects than the ‘renowned’ Paddy Waddells Railway; this intended to link up from Lingdale to the ironworks at Grosmont. This image shows his ‘navies’ working on the Loftus, Whitby and Scarborough line in 1883; making particular reference to the construction at all different levels. Hard labour indeed!
