Review Text

  • By Leonard Rogers on 14 April 2015

    A fascinating comparison of Worcestershire railways old and new. Particularly interesting if you're familiar with them as they now are but didn't know them in the past, as this reviewer didn't. One caveat - unlike other volumes in the series which I've seen, the author chooses to devote a number of pages at the end to modern-day 'specials' (without past comparisons), both steam- and vintage diesel- hauled.

    This book seeks to compare then and now photos of particular locations in the region given in the title. There are some very nice photos here especially the "then" ones, by and large the "now" ones are rather sad images of desolation and railway retrenchment, and in a few cases completely pointless photos of impenetrable hedges.Still, there is enough there to hold the interest of someone brought up in the region, and I am glad I bought it.

    Good value historical treatment of the rise (and in some cases fall) of railways in each UK region. One of an extensive series of similar books covering most of the UK.
