Birmingham : No. 61, Paperback


Birmingham was last visited by these authors for a "Past and Present" volume right back at the beginning of the series, when they produced "No 5 The West Midlands" more than 20 years ago in 1987!

It also fell within the Warwickshire volume of 2001, but this is the first time that the city's railways have been treated to a "Past and Present" volume of their own, neatly complementing Andrew Doherty's "Rail Around Birmingham" series.

This volume looks in detail at: Birmingham's principal stations: New Street, Snow Hill and Moor Street; The Cross City Line from Barnt Green to Blake Street; Former LMS main line from Birmingham International to Sandwell & Dudley; Former GWR lines through Snow Hill, some now forming part of the Midland Metro light rail network; The Camp Hill line; Loco sheds at Tyseley, Monument Lane, Aston and Saltley; Goods yards and industrial installations, including the Cadbury's system; and, The Harborne branch.
