Revised and enlarged edition of Neil Parkhouse' Gloucestershire Railways volume 1 covering West Gloucester and the Wye Valley LinesIncorporating pages of additional material and colour photographs which have become available since the publication of the first edition. Written and produced by respected Gloucestershire and Forest-of-Dean railway and industry historian Neil Parkhouse this is the first volume in an on-going British Railway History in Colour series covering Gloucester and routes to the west and south west of the city towards Wales.The county of Gloucestershire was once served by a maze of railway lines, many of which have long been closed. Fortunately, the scenery and differing railway architecture attracted the attention of a number of photographers many of whom began working with colour transparencies. This collection of over 500 colour images is supported with maps, tickets, Working Timetable extracts and other ephemera, to paint a picture of the railways of West Gloucestershire and the Wye Valley as they existed over fifty years ago. The aim has been to show the infrastructure – stations, signal boxes, goods yard, engine sheds – which has been lost, as much as the trains and their motive power. Along the way, some of the other locations which were once railway served – such as docks, quarries and industrial works – are also illustrated. Routes covered are Gloucester to Chepstow, Gloucester to Hereford, Ross-on-Wye to Monmouth, Monmouth to Pontypool Road and to Chepstow, plus the Llanthony branch to the 'GWR side' of Gloucester docks and the Ledbury branch. 275x215mm. Printed on gloss art paper, casebound with printed board covers.
