Gloucester Midland Lines Part 1: North

Neil Parkhouse    [Publisher: Lightmoor Press]    Hardback

A mind blowingly comprehensive collection of colour pictures of the Midland Railway and its routes in Gloucestershire, put together with care and thought by Neil Parkhouse who has been collecting images of the railway scene in Gloucestershire for many years. Arranged geographically from North to South from Defford on the main line and Evesham on the "branch", the quality and depth of coverage of the whole railway scene is most impressive. As Neil explains new images continue to appear via Ebay, including some superb shots around Gloucester taken by an unknown railwayman, recording operations, locomotives, special trains, enthusiasts but most of all the wonderful "traditional" railway scene. Although largely steam, there are quite few diesels in green and a few in blue livery. Overall this is a magnificent record, fascinating for the general reader but an invaluable source book of nearly everything for modellers of the railway scene. Of particular interest to me as so many of the locations are familiar, although my observations and travels were generally later than the period covered here.
