Lost Railways of Birmingham and the West Midlands, By Terry Moors

Book Review: 12 chapters discussing lost railways in the West Midlands. Many excellent photographs including many showing locomotives in action. A well written and researched book giving historic and current photos showing what was ,and what is left of some early Midland lines.

ISBN: 9781846741098

Score: 5
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Thanks for the review Malc. As a relative new comer to the WM area this will be of great interest.
I'm particularly interested in the sidings at Langley Green. Still present but overgrown. Does the book have anything on that area?

I couldn't find a mention, but then again, that line is still open. One thing that did interest me was that Moor Street in Birmingham had a traverser. I've only been from Moor Street a couple of times, but never noticed the site of it.

Thanks for the review, Malc. I always reckon that as a modeller you should assimilate every historical source for that extra bit of authenticity, be it in era or location.  :thumbsup:

Now, on a rainy night in Wellington, New Zealand, where else to look?
