Tim Edmonds - research interests and recent publications

Although my main research interests are in railway subjects, I have also worked on other forms of transport and am currently researching the surviving structures and artefacts of Blue Motors, a Minehead bus and coach operator from 1916 to 1954, and the history of a boat landing place at Bradley Gate (present day Blue Anchor). Current railway research includes an investigation into when the 'railway station' transmogrified into the 'train station'. Projects awaiting publication include an article about a short-lived narrow gauge railway at Barrow Butterfly Farm, Suffolk, and one about the broad/metre gauge level crossing that used to exist where two main lines intersected at Ratlam, India.

Some of my recent publications are:
