||By clicking on the OS Grid reference for each station
entry you will see a current map showing the station site. This
might be in the form of a street map or a general area map. The
arrow indicates the exact position of the station. If you see a
general area map by clicking on the third 'house' symbol form the
left (indicated yellow here) you will see a 1:50,000 OS map, by
clicking on the Plus (+) symbol you will see a local street map..
We are currently working on the following:
GWR Main Line between Birmingham Snow Hill - Chester General
Butterley - Langley Mill,
Little Eaton - Ripley
Bumble Hole line (Old Hill to Dudley) - NEXT
South Staffordshire Line (Lichfield to Dudley)
East Coast Main Line north of Newcastle
Mildenhall branch (including Cambridge)
I am happy to accept collections of photographs, slides or negatives of stations (open or closed) that can be used on the web site. Any quantity. Collection can be arranged.
Please contact email@example.com
We are unable to help with any kind of family history enquiry as this falls outside the scope of the very limited research required to produce the brief history of a line or station that appears on the web site.
Due for publication 24 May 2015

Photographs used on this web site have been obtained from a variety of sources. Those obtained directly from the original photographer or a picture library have been duly acknowledged, but some may have been acquired on the open market and, despite attempts at tracing their origin, many of these inevitably remain anonymous. These are usually credited to the 'collection' of the contributor. If, through no fault of our own, photographs or images have been used without due credit or acknowledgement, then apologies are offered. If anyone believes this to be the case, then please let us know and the necessary credit will be added at the earliest opportunity.
