Worcestershire Railways PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Worcestershire Railways free pdf The railways which operated in Worcestershire were controlled by the Midland Railway and the Great Western railway, whose struggle for supremacy had considerable effect on the development of railways in the county. The most important route through the county linked the great industrial centres of the Midlands and the seaport of Bristol, while lesser routes included the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway- Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway- the Severn Valley Railway, and numerous branch lines. The photographs in this book illustrate not only the county's trains and locomotives but also many of the stations, locosheds and locomotive building works- and the picture is completed with timetables and shed allocations.
