Gloucester Docks and their Railways

Neil Parkhouse, in one of his fantastic collections of colour photographs from the last decades of steam in Gloucestershire (British Railway History in Colour) focusses on the Midland lines serving the docks, specifically three lines in the area - the Tuffley Loop; the High Orchard Branch; and the Hempsted or New Docks Branch. The Western approaches to the docks are covered in the first volume in the series.

This thread is designed to cover the Railways of the Docks - the first post below is a general over view. Elsewhere I have posted about the ancient tramroad that first served the docks - it was a 3ft 6in gauge plateway which ran between Gloucester and Cheltenham - The Gloucester and Cheltenham Plateway.

The following posts on the thread will seek to follow the routes of the various branches and their sidings.
