The Great Snailbeach Railway Mystery
In the past I have reported two stories about the Snailbeach District Railways. The first said that there were plans to reopen the line. The second said that two of the scheme's prime movers had died in a car crash in Switzerland.
Both these reports were from the Shropshire Star, so I reasoned that they must be true.
But people have left comments on both postings suggesting the scheme is a hoax or a fantasy. One of those messages directed readers to a Yahoo group (SnailbeachOversight) devoted to this theory.
Intriguing. Liberal England will investigate further.
