Warwickshire Railways : Britain's Railways in Old Photographs Paperback / softback
by Mike Hitches
Warwickshire Railways is a fascinating account of the changes and developments which particularly characterized this stretch of railway.
The struggles and battles between the various railway companies - the L&B, TVR, LNWR, GWR and NWR - for supremacy over some of the Warwickshire branches are here evocatively depicted by detailed introductory texts to each section.
Archive photographs, some never before seen, period timetables, company advertisements and loco-shed allocations also add to the atmosphere and vividly conjure up a picture of a mode of transport that has, sadly, long gone.
This nostalgic collection will appeal to train enthusiasts, local historians and the general public alike and is an essential guide to an important part of our railway heritage.
