10 BECK, Keith M West Midland Lines of the GWR. First Edition in dustjacket
Ian Allan Ltd, London, 1983, ISBN:0711012113 
BECK, Keith M. The West Midland Lines of the GWR. London : Ian Allan Ltd, (91983). First Edition. Pp (6),7-[112]/ Illustrated. Map. Double Column. Large 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Alone among the Great Western Railway's Service Time Tables, No 15 not only listed the principal stations — in this case Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton — but also bore the title "West Midland Section'. Both descriptions harkened back to the original companies of the area, the West Midland Railway and one of its constituent elements, the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton. The West Midland Section has no great claim to fame, though it did link three cathedral cities (afact which British Railways belatedly recognised some years after the demi se or the GWR). Its train services were neither prolific nor generally veryfast; while many of its less-important lines were a last refuge for aged e ngines and cararaiages. But like most branch lines, those of the West Midlands and the Welch Marches were a fascinating repository of local tradition and life and, 80 years it had been absorbed into the GWR and after that mighty giant had itself been swalowed up into British Railways, the old West Midland still survived — albeit only as a section of the Western Region. In West Midland Lines of the GWR Keith Beck covers both this history and the workings of the West Midland in a detail that will fascinate and inform the reader." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. The 'Old Worse and Worse' — the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway. 2. 'Rails to Hereford'.3. The West Midland Railway and the West Midland Section. 4. West Midland Locomotives. 5. Paddington to Worcester, Wolverhampton ana Hereford. 6. 'All stations to Worcester' — local services on the main lines. 7. 'West to North' and 'North to West'. 8.
