A pictorial history of the railways around Stafford, Steam Around Stafford includes the Grand Junction Railway, the Trent Valley Railway, and the branches of the Great Northern Railway. Mike Hitches’ evocative record recalls a time when these routes were busy with passengers, staff, and freight, making mention of the modern system as well as the age of steam. The author looks in some detail at Stafford locoshed and the history of the private, Stafford-based locomotive builder, Bagnall. The reader will find details of the locomotives Bagnall built, and contemporary records, some of which have not been published before. Illustrated with more than photographs, plans, and ads, Steam Around Stafford is an invaluable guide to a intriguing topic. Railway author Mike Hitches was born in the Midlands, and his informative captions will make pleasurable reading for rail enthusiasts everywhere.
