Tuesday 4th September at 7pm; Rossiter Books, Ross on Wye – Ticket £3
Railway enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy this evening with Robert Lewis who will give an illustrated talk about his new book Railways Around Hereford.
With a wealth of previously unpublished images, this nostalgic look back on the railways in and around Hereford will appeal to any enthusiast who has taken a snap, recorded a number, or simply caught a train at Hereford.
Railways Around Hereford features photographs taken by Robert Lewis and a number of other railway enthusiasts, covering a period of around fifty years. The end of steam is featured, as well as up to date images of the current scene around Hereford. These images feature a large variety of locomotives and workings that have been recorded by local enthusiasts over the years. As well as changes in locomotives and stock, the changing nature of freight traffic in the area is also recorded here. It also features areas and lines that have now sadly been closed, including the Bulmer’s railway centre and the Barton line and yard.
