Birmingham was last visited by these authors for a "Past and Present" volume right back at the beginning of the series, when they produced "No 5 The West Midlands" more than 20 years ago in 1987! It also fell within the Warwickshire volume of 2001, but this is the first time that the city's railways have been treated to a "Past and Present" volume of their own, neatly complementing Andrew Doherty's "Rail Around Birmingham" series. This volume looks in detail at: Birmingham's principal stations: New Street, Snow Hill and Moor Street; The Cross City Line from Barnt Green to Blake Street; Former LMS main line from Birmingham International to Sandwell & Dudley; Former GWR lines through Snow Hill, some now forming part of the Midland Metro light rail network; The Camp Hill line; Loco sheds at Tyseley, Monument Lane, Aston and Saltley; Goods yards and industrial installations, including the Cadbury's system; and, The Harborne branch.

Both Geoff Dowling and John Whitehouse were born and bred in the area covered by this book and its 'next-door' volume, No 62 South and East Staffordshire. Both were trainspotters in their younger years, and both have been observing and recording the local railway scene since the early 1970s. Geoff is a retired professional photographer formerly working within the University of Birmingham, while John, who worked in a Birmingham bank for many years, is now well-known as a railway photographer and journalist.
