Birkenhead Railways : A Photographic History


Product Information

ISBN:9781915069030, HARDBACK

The railways of Birkenhead have not been well covered in print to date but this photographic album looks to redress that imbalance. The Birkenhead Railway, the main line to this port town situated in the north-west corner of the Wirral peninsula, on the west bank of the Mersey and facing across the river to Liverpool, was operated jointly by the London & North Western and Great Western railways from 1860, and then by the London, Midland & Scottish Railway and the GWR after the 1923 Grouping. This joint ownership thus produced a great variety in locomotives, rolling stock and company styles in a comparatively small area, greatly increasing its interest. However, being somewhat out on a limb, Birkenhead did not receive the photographic coverage that many other railway centres enjoyed.
