South and East Staffordshire, Paperback


Filling a gap not visited since the same authors included it in "British Railways Past and Present No 5 The West Midlands" more than 20 years ago in 1987, not surprisingly this important area of the Black Country contains many interesting railways, and is here given a volume to itself for the first time, neatly complementing Andrew Doherty's "Rail Around Birmingham" series.

This volume looks in detail at: The former LMS Stour Valley line to Wolverhampton High Level station, with Bushbury shed and Oxley carriage depot; The former GWR Low Level station, the GWR locomotive works and Oxley shed; Lines and yards around Bescot; Lines from Walsall to Rugeley, Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield; Burton upon Trent and its network of brewery railways; The Midland Metro route from West Bromwich to Wolverhampton; The Trent Valley line through Tamworth and Lichfield; Former Midland Railway lines around Tamworth; and, Mineral and colliery lines.
