Railway Memorabilia & Ephemera

The items shown below are part of my personal collection of railway memorabilia. Some of them are useful resources for studying the area's railways and others are just more of a fascinating read. As I'm sure you will appreciate, it is not possible for me to publish on this site the full contents of each item - although I'm sure that would be of interest - so I propose that if there is anything of specific interest, please let me know and I will scan it and email it to you. If I can come up with any way to display the items in greater detail I will do so.

Railway Clearing House map of central Birmingham railways LNWR Curzon Street station zinc paycheck Snow Hill station platform ticket Jewellery Line leaflet

A Railway Clearing House diagram of Birmingham & Bordesley's central railway junctions depicting company ownership of each line.

LNWR zinc paycheck no.557. Not in the greatest condition but an interesting relic nonetheless.

A sign of days gone by: platform tickets! This one from Birmingham Snow Hill in post-GWR days before its untimely closure and 1980s resurrection.

This 1995 leaflet promotes the opening of the Jubilee Line in Birmingham with information on the line and a map. Click on the image to read the entire leaflet.

Windmill End halt ticket Alcester - New Street station ticket Castle Bromwich station ticket Hampton in Arden station ticket

One of my favourite items: a 3rd Class Windmill End to Longbridge return issued during BR days for 'Workmens Trains' that were the only passenger carrying services post-1919 between Halesowen and Longbridge serving the Austin Motor Company works.

Another interesting item is this LMS New St to Alcester ticket: mainly for the 'via Redditch' recognition of the days when the station was a through route.

A 1964 single Castle Bromwich - Birmingham New Street ticket: of particular interest due to the closure of the former station in 1968.

An undated Hampton in Arden - Lea Hall 2nd class single.

Saltley station ticket Wolverhampton Low Level station ticket LNWR parcel receipt

Of particular interest is this 2nd class single from 11/11/68 for Coleshill to Saltley. Coleshill (originally Forge Mills) closed in 1965 and Saltley in 1968.

Another long-gone station, this undated 'Ocean Passenger' ticket including dockyard fees, covers the journey from Wolverhampton Low Level to Plymouth.

This interesting item is a LNWR parcel way bill dated '6th Jan 1886' for an item travelling for 6d from New Street to Chester Road.
