Description

Black Country Society member and local transport enthusiast Ned Williams has assembled over 200 photographs, which bring to life the railways of the Black Country and the landscape that they traversed. Here are the express trains on the ex-LMS and GWR mainlines of the region, the local passenger trains on the many interconnecting lines, and the goods trains, yards and loco sheds that we once took for granted. Photographs are included of rail transport in the service of local industry - trains and locomotives at work in surroundings that once used to symbolize the industrial might of the Black Country. Recognition is also made of the many men and women who once worked on our local railways. From the 'Kings' of Stafford Road to the humble shunter working in a steel works - all railway life is here.show more
