GWR at Stourbridge and the Black Country Vol 1

Details

The author has endeavoured to record as much as possible about railwaymen themselves, much of it gleaned from early papers, but even more has come direct from 'the horse's mouth'. Not only do these contributions reflect life on the footplate, but also the work of other grades whose work is so often ignored: the station master; booking clerk; goods clerk; shunter; goods guard; and engine fitter. Operational and technical elements have of course not been ignored and this book takes a close look at all the installations and facilities within an area bordered by and including Stourbridge Junction, Dudley, Langley Green and Halesowen; in fact all of those yards where Stourbridge men spent their working lives.
