Shropshire Railways History Past and present
Shropshire railways and Shropshire disused railways can be explored through videos, pictures and text on this website. The Severn Valley Railway, The Telford Steam Railway and the Cambrian Heritage Railway are also heavily featured. Many of the old lines have been opened up as Railway Walks across the length and breadth of Shropshire. Learn about their history, the changes it brought to the local communities and the legacy they have left in their demise. Many have similar stories to tell from their relatively short histories, however they also retain a unique presence on the Shropshire landscape in their own right. Watch out for updates as developments happen in 2017. Recent updates  included the extension to Lawley common of the Telford Steam Railway and the development of the cyclepath to the East of Newport on the Wellington to Stafford
