This book puts together the collected memories of a varied group of men from the now closed Ryecroft shed, with lots of facts about the history of the shed, to present a record of railway life in Walsall. It recounts the vibrant, intense activity of Walsall Station and its Long Street and Midland goods yards, which during the period 1879 to 1957 were the focal point of travel and commerce in Walsall. The station was one of the key contributors to the development of Walsall becoming a Borough, then a Metropolitan Borough. The shed closed in 1957, when increased road transport brought about a decline of rail revenue. Walsall's Engine Shed will appeal to the families of the hundreds of men who worked at the Ryecroft shed, plus the many railway and industry enthusiasts in the area.
