The book includes: Oswestry, Ellesmere, Ifton Colliery, Granville Colliery, Welshpool, Llanfyllin, Whitchurch, Nantmawr Quarry, Market Drayton, Clee Hill Quarry Incline, Shrewsbury, The Shropshire & Montgomeryshire Railway, Minsterley, The Snailbeach District Railways, Wellington, Longville, Much Wenlock, Coalport, Bridgnorth, Bewdley, Kidderminster, Tenbury Wells branch, The Cleobury Mortimer & Ditton Priors Railway. Most Importantly, it covers the Severn Valley Railway in its pre-preservation days, making this book unique.

About Author

The author and his late father in the 1950s & 1960s lived in Worcestershire but travelled all over Britain, from Penzance to the north of Scotland, filming many now long closed railways and the steam locomotives that worked on them. The movie film collection, the largest of its kind in the UK, has been released by the author on thirty videos starting in the 1990s. The first volume of still photographs was published in 2007 and this is the author's sixth book. The author's website can be visited at and contains many hundreds of pages of railway memorabilia.
