Magnify Midland Red Double-deckers

Midland Red Double-deckers
Category: Bicycles
Description: Throughout their existence from 1904 until 1981, the Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company were an idiosyncratic operator whose operational area covered an area from the Welsh Marches and Shropshire in the West to Northamptonshire and Rutland in the East and from Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire in the South to Staffordshire and Derbyshire in the North. Much of their area was distinctly rural but in the Birmingham and the Black Country, Worcester and Hereford, Stafford and Leicester, intense urban services were operated mainly by double-decker buses and it is these buses that this volume examines. For most of its operational life, BMMO constructed their own chassis fitted with proprietary bodies to their own often novel and frequently advanced designs. During the 1930s around 400 double-deck rear-entrance REDDs and front-entrance FEDDs were built plus others for both Trent and Potteries Motor Traction. During the Second World War double-deck buses were allocated to the Company by the Ministry of War Transport but after the end of hostilities bus manufacture resumed until economic pressures caused the cessation of double-deck manufacture at Carlyle Road Works in 1966. Shortages of buses did result in twenty Guy Arab IIIs and 100 Leyland Titan PD2/12s to be purchased between 1849 and 1954, but from the 1960s until the company was split up, the rear-entrance Daimler Fleetline was the chassis of choice. The book will examine each type of double-decker with a history of the model, a brief technical specification and captioned photographs taken during the type's period in service.

The Midland Railway


Category: Tracked Vehicles
Description: The Roy F. Burrows Midland Railway Collection was started by Roy F. Burrows in the 1940s and is now generally recognised as a railway collection of national significance devoted to one particular pre-grouping railway company - the Midland - up to 1922 (www.rfbmidlandtrust.org.uk). It is now a registered charity and is housed in the Midland Railway Study Centre, part of the Silk Mill Museum, Derby and comprises over 44,000 items. This book covers a brief history of the collection and emphasises aspects of memorabilia not usually associated with the railway such as hotel china and silver plate, showing the wide variety of artefacts and documents used by one of the major railways of the Victorian/ Edwardian era. These include timetables, publicity, tickets, signalling, uniforms, badges, commercial documentation, share certificates, labels, horse brasses, clocks and watches, as well as employees' social and welfare activities.

London Midland


Category: Tracked Vehicles
Description: Operated by the Govia Group, London Midland commenced operation in November 2007, combining the former Silverlink franchise with parts of the former Central Trains franchise. The geographical area covered by the company stretches from London Euston, through Birmingham and up to Liverpool Lime Street, while also operating an intensive suburban service in the West Midlands. Both diesel and electric multiple units are used on a variety of routes, covering many millions of passenger journeys throughout the years. The decision to award the West Midland franchise to Abellio has resulted in the end of the London Midland brand, with the company ceasing to be in December 2017. This book aims to show the company and its workings throughout the ten years it operated, giving sterling service to the people of the West Midlands, and up and down the west coast.

London Midland Steam 1948 To 1966


Category: Tracked Vehicles
Description: The book concentrates on the London Midland Region in the final years of steam traction covering the period 1948 to 1966. All major London Midland Region towns and cities are represented. - A fascinating collection of hitherto unpublished black and white photographs by former Senior British Medical Council researcher, Ben Brooksbank. - Over 275 photographs are included. - The photographs show remarkable clarity even though photographic materials were difficult to obtain during the immediate post-war period. - Many different classes of locomotives are featured, ranging from the old Midland and LNWR engines ready for withdrawal in the late 1940s, the ex- MR Johnson 0-6-0s which would survive a little longer, the Fowler classes quietly going about their business, the Stanier Class 5 and 8 Fs covered in grime, but still efficient, while a bit of 'glamour' is provided by (some) neatly turned out named ' Jubilee' 4-6-0s and ' Coronation' Pacifics. The next generation of locomotives - the BR Standards - also appear, with the ' Britannia' Pacifics included along with Class 5 4-6-0s, Class 4 4-6-0s, Class 4 2-6- 0s, Class 3 2-6-2 Ts and the heavy freight 9 F 2-10-0s. - Photographs have been taken from the line-side, on station platforms, on shed, around a number of Works and along lines which have long since disappeared. - The captions are well researched and include locomotive details as well as historical information about the various routes, stations and other architectural features
