Industrial Railways

The presence of heavy engineering works in the Birmingham conurbation supplemented by quarries, cement works, power stations and gas works meant that Warwickshire had a rich variety of industrial railways. Where the available photographs and other material justifies it we have provided separate sections for each such as the Edge Hill Light Railway, Foleshill Railway and Cadbury's Railways. For all others we have grouped them together by location on a general page. Should any one wish to expand this section by contributing words or photographs then they would be most welcome. Please forward your contribution or comments to warks.railways@outlook.com. It is my practice to credit all contributors within the relevant sections of the website.
