- 177. The story of fight to save our railways - Local - Whitby Gazette
It is half a century ago when the face of railway travel across Whitby and district changed forever when the decision was made public to close two of its busy railway lines.The infamous Dr Richard Beeching who was recruited by the Government from a very successful business career at ICI, was tasked with making railways profitable again.His report published in 1963 recommended taking an axe to a third of the country’s rail network, 5,000 miles of track including hundreds of branch lines, 2,363 stations and tens of thousands of jobs.Despite furious vocal opposition from in and around Whitby, British Rail issued formal closure notices for all three lines in February 1964Labour peer Lord Faulkner, who is deputy leader in the House of Lords, told the Whitby Gazette: “Unsurprisingly, the Whitby Gazette claimed a great victory and believed that is campaign had saved all three services.“Three weeks later, however, jubilation turned to despair when Minister of Transport Ernest Marples announced that then Middlesbrough to Whitby line would be reprieved but closure of the other two would go ahead.”As the general election approached, Peter Hardy, Labour candidate for Scarborough and Whitby produced a letter written by Harold Wilson on September 15 which said that the two threatened lines to Whitby fell within the manifesto pledge on major closures - that if Labour won the election the two threatened lines would be reprieved.The Prime Minister’s letter was later exposed as a hoax - the Gazette reported at the time of the “rail letter callous hoax” and to this day, no one has admitted to sending it.Cabinet records also show, according to the book, that the closure of the two lines to Whitby and a number of others at the same time went ahead because Labour had decided to go back on their election manifesto commitment to halt major closures.On 22 December, Conservative Whitby and Scarborough MP Sir Alexander Spearman made one last effort to save the two lines.....
