About this title


This is an examination of 400 years of railways in Shropshire, from the primitive wagonways of the pre-railway age, to the county's current rail network and services. Fully illustrated, it includes almost 200 monochrome and color photos, and is an ideal resource for anyone with an interest in the UK's rich railway history. Including detailed route maps and a survey of timetables over the years, the book covers the pre-railway age and the coming of the main lines, with the opening of the Shrewsbury and Chester railway in 1848. Also discussed is the "grouping" of the railway companies in 1923—the Great Western Railway and London, Midland, and Scottish Railway era in the county, as well as the British Railways period from 1948-1994, covering nationalization and modernization, passenger and freight trains, and locomotive sheds. Not forgotten are the minor lines, the industrial railways, the heritage railways, and the current main line scene.

About the Author:

Geoff Cryer's thousands of photographs record an interest in railways from the late 1960s. Shropshire's attractions, not least its wealth of railway history, soon became clear to Cryer when he came to the county to work in further and higher education, nearly forty years ago.
