Bristol’s role as the major port and commercial city of the South West of England developed in conjunction with its bustling railway network. London Midland and Scottish lines intersected with those of the Great Western Railway, and a host of stations were built to serve the ever-expanding population.
Many of Bristol's routes, and most of the former stations, have now been consigned to history. Thanks to the help of Avon Valley Railway, who have lovingly restored part of the local system, you can now journey through time to recreate the magic of the railways in their heyday.
With the aid of some wonderful old photographs, specialist contributors reveal the full glory of Bristol’s railway heritage. Compelling viewing for railway enthusiasts everywhere.
