This new title in the growing Recollections series takes us back through the years using archive pictures of The Severn Valley Railway, selected to show the line in day-to-day use, we see pre-preservation scenes and preserved era scenes along the route. The Severn Valley Railway that we can travel on today was closed to passenger traffic in stages during the 1960's and early 1970 - the final section from Bewdley to Kidderminster closing on 5 January 1970. That as we now know was not to be the end. In 1965 a small band of enthusiasts met in Kidderminster and formed The Severn Valley Railway Society. - Initial efforts succeeded in raising 25 per cent of the GBP25,000 purchase price for the closed 5-mile section of the Severn Valley line from Bridgnorth to Alveley. By 1967, the first rolling stock, an engine and four coaches, had been received. From this small 'base camp' the ever growing numbers of enthusiasts started to climb the initial mountain and over the ensuing forty years have scaled many more! The line has not just reopened from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth it has restored, grown and developed - with new station facilities, carriage sheds, workshops, signal boxes etc., etc. For the enthusiast there are classic shots of the railway operating during the year, but this is not just a book for enthusiasts - memories are made of these pictures. The station scenes, fashions, old carriages, wagons, buildings, advertising, etc, will evoke memories of days past.
