About Me

Born in Walsall, lived in Brownhills until 1970 then back in the area from 2001. I used to see on the side of the railway line at Brownhills watching the freight trains pass after the closing of the line. 

I have vivid memories of my mom taking me to Walsall  from Brownhills and also to Lichfield. I particularly remember the waiting room with its coal fire burning and the padded bench seat.

I walked the line and took pictures through nostalgia more than anything and then discussed through Rob that the railway line was disappearing through vandalism hence took more pictures than planned. 

I have some slide pictures of the line between Brownhills Bridge and Newtown somewhere that I will try and resurrect and post on site in the future.
