Railways of the Black Country

Railways of the Black Country

Author: Steve Burdett Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/02/2020

The Black Country is an area immediately to the west of Birmingham heavily associated with the Industrial Revolution. The townships are fiercely partisan and in typical fashion have fought hard for their railway connections. The main presence was provided by the GWR and the LNWR with routes between the major centres. Other minor concerns were represented by local industries. Given the industrial nature of the area, it has been neglected by photographers and over the last fifty years Steve Burdett has uncovered and recorded a system that was decimated in the Beeching Report. As a result, a variety of locations including Stourbridge, Wolverhampton, Walsall and Bescot are included in this photographic tour around the region. In recent years, an enlightened transport policy has seen an improvement in infrastructure and services including the Midland Metro with more to follow. A variety of motive power is to be seen within this fascinating collection.

Railways Around Worcestershire

Railways Around Worcestershire

Author: Steve Burdett Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/12/2018

Railways Around Worcestershire is one man's view of a range of railway operations in the beautiful heart of England over a period spanning nearly half a century. The early 1970s was an era neglected by many photographers following the end of steam - however, it is now quite apparent how the intervening generations have seen even greater changes. Ranging from the Malvern Hills through the beautiful cathedral city of Worcester to the Cotswolds, the railways are once again going through a transitional period where traditional semaphore signalling controls operations at Worcester while a new Parkway station is being built on the city outskirts. A wide range of motive power is featured at a range of locations - Worcester, Great Malvern, Evesham, Droitwich Spa, Kidderminster and more.
