Author Tom Ferris uncovers Wales’ railway heritage through a series of pocket books, each one looking at a ‘lost line’ of Wales.
Take a nostalgic steam-powered journey back in time on the line between Shrewsbury and Aberystwyth. By the early 1850s, Shrewsbury had become the important railway junction it remains to this day. The first line to serve the town was the Shrewsbury to Chester which opened in 1848, followed by the Shrewsbury & Birmingham (1849) and the Shrewsbury & Hereford (1852).
Includes an essay on the history of the line and photographs of its locomotives, trains and stations. Explore the line station by station as the history, heritage and social background of the railway and its passengers is brought to life using archive photography, some of which has never been published before.
