Railway Roundabout: Harborne and Halesowen

Atmospheric film from 1959 of two Birmingham branch lines that, even then, had long since lost their regular passenger service. Both were closed not long after this film was made.

Wikipedia has good pages on both the Harborne Railway and the Halesowen Railway. The latter included the extraordinary Dowery Dell viaduct - that link will take you to a video of it in an earlier post on this blog.
