For over forty years author Pat Wallace worked the Bromsgrove line, well known for the steep Lickey incline and the locomotives which helped the heavy trains to cope, including the famous Big Bertha. From engine cleaner to fireman and driver, Pat carefully records his career in a series of diaries which capture the daily routine and events of a railwayman's life as steam hauled trains gave way to diesels.

Today the line awaits a new station and electrification.

The book is complete with one hundred photographs of locomotives and rolling stock through the years.

"The changing scene at Bromsgrove is recorded well, both in text and pictures, and at £10.95, the book is excellent value for money."
