The GWR at Stourbridge and the Black country Volume 2

The GWR at Stourbridge and the Black country Volume 2

Regular price £11.50
This second volume continues with a detailed look at the work and men of Stourbridge shed. After considering the locomotive stud in the area, the human side of the story dominates this volume, which has numerous reminiscences and tells of the role the trade unions played in the 20th century. The book also reviews some of the work carried out by Kidderminster shed. Kidderminster lies just six miles to the south of Stourbridge Junction and after 1960 the railway operation at the town came to be closely linked with that of Stourbridge, although long before World War II it was Stourbridge men who would work Kidderminster's class 'C' express freight to Paddington. This freight was one of the GWR's named services of the late 1920s running as 'The Carpet'. Ray Kendrick recounts his experiences there in his driving days.
