Description

With a wealth of images coming to light following publication of the first volume: Rails to the Forest this second volume has been increased in extent to 160 pages. The content of Volume 2 is once again mostly confined to the post-WW2 era, i.e. from 1945, and comprising the S&W 'main line' north of Norchard to Cinderford, plus the Mineral Loop and all branches including those to Coleford and Lydbrook. A good selection of b&w photographs will illustrate not only regular scheduled S&W line operations, but also visiting rail tour charters, BR excursions from Parkend, operations at the collieries and quarries, plus lifting of the Lydbrook and Cinderford lines, and some key events from the preservation era. The increased content of the book has entailed an additional amount and depth of research, such that this volume has become long awaited and indeed much sought after! Rob Rowland has once again provided the painting for the cover, which depicts an Ex-GWR Diesel Railcar, now in BR 'Blood and Custard' livery, crossing the Lydbrook viaduct forming what proved to be the last passenger train to work over this section of the S&WR in June 1951.
