- British Railway History in Colour Volume 4b: Gloucester Midland Lines Part 3 : South - Stonehouse to Westerleigh and Branches
- In 1845, the Midland Railway, formed only a year earlier, outflanked and outbid the Great Western Railway for the purchase of the Birmingham & Gloucester and Bristol & Gloucester railways, who themselves had just agreed to amalgamate as the Birmingham & Bristol Railway. As a result, the railway map of Gloucestershire was to have a Midland red spine, with an important and busy main line running through the county from Ashchurch in the north to Yate in the south and with numerous branches breaking off from it. It also served to turn Gloucester in to one of the country’s great railway centres of the steam age, where the Midland had a separate station, goods yards, dock system and locomotive shed.
- Volume 4a begins at Gloucester Eastgate station and travels to Stonehouse via the Tuffley Loop, whilst visits are made to Gloucester Docks on the High Orchard Branch and the Hempsted or New Docks Branch, and to the Nailsworth & Stroud Branch from Stonehouse. And all in colour!
