This site about the railways of Worcestershire is the work of the Malvern Industrial Archaeology Circle (MIAC), formed by members of the Worcester Locomotive Society. For over 40 years we have been documenting the railways of Britain and overseas. An increasing number of individuals and commercial concerns are also making information and photographs available.

This site uses the boundaries of Worcestershire as they were in 1900.

The long reign of the "HST 125s" on the Cotswold line came to the end in April 2019 and the last of all went out from Paddington on Sunday 18th May. From now on for Worcestershire it will be an endless procession of the most awful trains ever procured by the privatised railway. The reign of the fine HST trains is ended. The picture celebrates the agreement reached to keep the popular tea rooms open at Great Malven Station.
Following the receipt of more information the photographs of John Rumsey have been updated. The photograph on the left sets the scene at Worcester on 1st April 1965 before trees rendered this view unobtainable. John Rumsey Photograph Collection
