Well done in getting the guestbook up and running again - looks like you have sorted out the problem of those who trashed it with spam.
Just found a set of photos which may interest people - they can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/loose_grip_99/sets/72157594227939322/.
I worked briefly in Birmingham in the mid 1970's and remember Snow Hill exactly as depicted here - unfortunatly I never had a camera and there was not enough time in my lunch hours to properly explore it.
Keep up the good work.
Guy, it took a while but I finally got around to coding a Guestbook from scratch with a few built-in safety measures that, touch wood, up until now have prevented any unsavoury spamming messages from appearing.
Thanks for the URL also, many interesting pics on there. In fact, I was so taken that I've started a gallery on there too!

Very good site. I like the other reader's galleries.
Excellent site very interesting and informative.
Was there ever a station at Cofton? And if so where was it? Also where were the location of the 3 stations at Lifford I have found these stations particularly hard to work out.
Thanks for the entry Ben. I've never come across a station at Cofton (there was one at Coughton, however). The nearest to Cofton would have been the Halesowen Railway's Longbridge Station and Barnt Green.
Regarding the trio of Lifford stations, click on the 'Map' link at the bottom of the Lifford Wharf page HERE
Hope this helps!

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.
