I saw a very slow train on the railway in digbeth yesterday (sunday), it was spitting out endless pullution and moving at snail pace. I just wanted to say that I'm pleased that most trains these days are cleaner on the environment and I hope we can keep improving things. Nice website by the way, although the navigation has a problem on Netscape 7 on Unix (test it on the Sun computers in Birmingham Central Library).
Website navigation has been tested on Netscape, Opera, Mozilla Firefox and Windows and works fine in all of them, including on Macs - not sure about Unix though: don't have that environment to bug-hunt!

I am just writing to say that I am currently thinking about trying to create a charity group that aims to rebuild the stretch of line from walsall to lichfield. The line will hopefully become a historically run branchline and would hopefully look something like the severn valley in years to come but not quite on that scale. I would appreciate your views on the idea.
Great idea Phil, if there's anything I can do to help, let me know. However, it would be a rather large undertaking, both financially and physically, so I hope you know what you are letting yourself in for! Might I recommend contacting the Chairman of Chasewater Railway if you want a bit of advice?
What do other readers think?

Found this to be a very interesting site that brought back lots of memories. I spent a lot of time on Northfield, Kings Norton and especially Selly Oak stations. Could not count the hours spent on New Street and Snow Hill as well. I do still have a few photos - mostly black and white - taken in the 60's as a schoolkid. If you could contact me, I would appreciate it as there are many stories - some might even be relevant - that I would like to pass on. Remember the 'Blood tub' at Snow Hill with Athelhampton Hall on duty as if it were yesterday.
Thanks and keep it up - even if the odd idiot seems to creep in from time to time.

HELLO GREAT SITE VERY INTERESTING DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY PHOTOS/MEMORIES OF BROMFORD BRIDGE AND THE MONKEY RUN?

This website is fantastic. Seeing the pictures of what should still be Hazelwell station started a trail of thinking for me. That whole line should not be used for Freight. They should bring back passenger services. :(
Great site :-D
Quite agree Craig - a review of the Camp Hill line has been undertaken and a further preliminary feasibility study is currently being conducted in relation to reopening the line, and several of its stations, for passenger traffic: may all come to nothing, but fingers crossed!

I have enjoyed RAB for many months now and I am visiting West Midlands in September this year to see my relatives.As a kid in the forties I was an avid Train spotter of GWR & LMS locomotives and I am going to see steam locos at Severn Valley Railway and Tyseley. Once again your Website is fantastic, keep up the good work. Regards Patrick Prinn
