Severn Valley Railway : A View from the Past

First published by Ian Allan in 1998, this popular title has been reprinted to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the closure of the Great Western Railway’s line along the Severn Valley. 

Accompanied by a fascinating selection of original photographs, it examines the history of a railway that once linked Shrewsbury with Hartlebury, just north of Worcester, and Bewdley to Kidderminster.  Locomotives that worked over the railway are illustrated as are all the stations and major industries along the route.


This book will be of great interest to not only railway enthusiasts but also all those who enjoys travelling on the preserved Severn Valley Railway’s steam trains between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster.
