Excellent site, and of particular interest to me. My great great grandfather Samuel Langford was a Station Master and lived at Fenton Street Brierly Hill in 1866. I guess it's fair to assume that he was a Railway Station Master at Brierley Hill Station. Would love to hear from anyone that can confirm that fact. Kind Regards, Pauline

Congratulations on a very well laid out and interesting website. I have fond memories of my trips between Erdington and Sutton Coldfield as a schoolboy back in the '50s. My, how the line has changed since those days. I remember well the Fowler and Webb tanks and later the DMU's which hauled the trains to and from Lichfield. I am still a train fanatic and now enjoy driving a 7.25inch gauge miniature steam pacific loco most weekends.

What a website - brings back lots of memories, especially along the Halesowen branch - Rubery Stn was close to my old school. Now involved in building O-gauge layout, hopefully invoking lots of those old memories.

Hi Andy!
Thank you very much for the photos of the old Corporation Street Depot. I took a couple myself but was a little late as the demolition was already in progress! Wonderful site you have here. Keep up the good work!

Fantastic website, very intresting to look around the stations long-gone and existing ones today. I find the Wolverhampton L/L to Bordesley section most fascinating, when i was young i was often on the Paddington-Birmingham Snow Hill trains and i have some memories of this route-- "The better way to london" ! keep up the good work and once again- many thanks :)


Hi Adam, glad you enjoy the website. I've just got back from my hols and should be updating the site soon so please keep checking back.

Past and present, then and now of the railways of the West Midlands and Staffordshire is of immense interest to me. I've been a train driver for twenty years and to see the sometimes very small signs of what used to be is fascinating. Thank you for a excellent and unrivaled website.


Thanks for the entry Stephen - I'm looking forward to seeing the new book in print myself as I'm just about to start work on the Worcestershire and Warwickshire volume which should complete the 3 part series. Hopefully it will have a few bits of interest for you and as an aside, I'd recommend anyone reading this to visit your website too as theres's ome great stuff on there!

Stumbled across your site whilst looking for Lichfield City #2 signal box. My father was a signalman there from 1919 thru 1954 when he retired. Plus I worked at B'ham New St. Would love to get photos of the #2 signal box to show my children. Thanks for the great site.


Not sure if I have any photographs of No2 box but I'll take a look when I get the chance.
