Birmingham-Bristol Portrait of a Famous Midland Route: Part.2 Cheltenham to Bristol and Bath
This book continues the historical journey, mainly during the steam era, along the important and heavily used Birmingham - Bristol route. Leaving Cheltenham, where the MSWJ gave the Midland Railway access to Southampton, the line continues to Gloucester and then the relatively fast run to the heart of the rival GWR - Bristol. At Mangotsfield the Midland had a branch to Bath, where connection was made with the Somerset & Dorset Railway and trains for Bournemouth. The Midland also ran to Avonmouth Docks, an important source of traffic. Informative captions enhance the pictures, which are not just of trains and the varied motive power in steam days, but also cover stations, signal boxes, freight yards and tunnels, the whole giving a good account of the line's fortune over the years. Around 140 -150 black & white photos and illustrations.
Softback, 96 pages, black & white photographs
