The First Edition.
|The late 1980's saw the arrival in the shops, of the
city's best ever local history magazine, The Wolverhampton Railway
Gazette. It was a delight to go into a local bookshop and find the
latest copy on the shelves.
The magazine was devoted to the city's once
important and almost forgotten railway history. It was always worth
waiting for the next edition to appear. All of the editions were well
written and informative, and there was always something new to discover
between the covers.
John Bates, one of the editors, has kindly allowed me to use some material from the magazine. It was hard to decide which
articles to use as there were so many good ones to choose from.
chosen one article from each edition and several other articles,
including an interesting article on
working at Bushbury shed, which was in two parts. Part 1 was in the 1st edition
and part 2 was in the 2nd edition
