Having recently purchased the book I think it's excellent value for money. It covers all the old yards in the South Yorkshire area too. And reveals what they had to do to construct the Tinsley Yard. As one railway official said, "there was a bloody big mountain in the way".  They also had to drain an old colliery pumping house pond, which had over 1,400 fish in it, the fish were all moved to another lake in Rotherham. 

Fully detailed, it takes you to the closure and shows what is left on the ground.
