An examination of four hundred years of railways in Shropshire, from the primitive wagonways of the pre-railway age to the county's current rail network and services.

Including detailed route maps and a survey of timetables over the years, the book covers the pre-railway age and the coming of the main lines, with the opening of the Shrewsbury and Chester railway in 1848; the 'grouping' of the railway companies from 1923 - the Great Western Railway (GWR) and London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) era in the county; the British Railways period from 1948-1994 - nationalization and modernization, passenger and freight trains, and locomotive sheds; the minor lines, the industrial railways and the heritage railways; privatization and the current main line scene. Illustrated with 205 colour and black & white photographs and maps.

Politics, Publishing and Personalities: Wrexham Newspapers, 1848-1914 gives a unique insight into the world of provincial newspaper publishing in a North Wales town during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Wrexham s position on the Welsh border meant that its local newspapers had to compete with those from Shropshire, Cheshire and the rest of North Wales and this rivalry, together with differing political allegiances, often led to conflict between proprietors in the effort to gain the highest circulation. Politics, Publishing and Personalities draws together the battles to establish successful titles against the backdrop of British and Welsh politics and reveals the personalities involved in this microcosm of local society.
