I am pleased your website has been found from
www.google.co.uk which is a better railway
website you have there in the south of.
England and then I have just.
Found your website very interesting
indeed over in the north east of.
England while it is still the best one you
have for a look through any time of the day
during the weekend on sundays and saturdays

KINDEST REGARDS

Nice site with some interesting information and images of trains and railway stations. I have added a link to your webpage on a travel community called trivago so other people can view your site. If you or any of your guests would like to add pictures and information about Birmingham or the West Midlands on trivago you are very welcome. Keep up the good work and I hope you complete youe quest.

Googled old birmingham railways and came across this fascinating site. Dad was an railway man for 47 years so this brings back some memories of things I recall and things he told me about.
Does anyone have any pictures or info on the goods yard that used to be at severn street?

just browsing on google earth and came across your site. as an avid steam rail fan it\'s great to see a \"local history\" of any area, as you said, it\'s a shame that years ago we didn\'t have cameras to hand, but luckily some people did. a really interesting site and well laid out and of interest to any rail/history fan.

One of the most fascinating features of Midlands' rail history is to my mind the aborted Duddeston viaduct (Misc section on this site - http://www.railaroundbirmingham.co.uk/full_photo_pages/brunels_viaduct_to_nowhere_montague_st.htm ).

It's an amazing brick viaduct that still dominates the area - if on a train from Walsall/Lichfield approaching the Proof House junction at New Street, you can see the viaduct in the distance making its way towards you and stopping. Tracing it on Google Earth shows that it goes over half the way to the New Street line before stopping. It's amazing to think that no-one has been on the top of there in over a hundred years (dunno when it was built) - but I've only ever found limited information about the scheme.

I wonder if these pics of Selly Oak would stir the memories of anyone with connections to the area? I do recall the Dares Drum Bitter ad that was on the bridge over the A38. Also a coal yard that I got down into and then onto the tow path of the canal. Had one of those early scooters and decided to follow the canal. Ended up in the Gas street area but had a great day on New St. All of 7 at the time.

Hi there, just wanted to compliment you on the site. Living now in the Dudley area I've always thought it such a shame to see the disused lines all over the place so it was a real joy to find your site and be able to look into the history of them, many thanks.
