The disused Severn Valley Railway: Shrewsbury to Bridgnorth 2
If the problem in part 1 was the amount of redevelopment that has taken place at the Shrewsbury end of the line, the problem here in part 2 is geology.
While a preserved steam railway would complement the industrial museums of the Ironbridge Gorge nicely, there are serious problems there with landslips. I suspect they mean a northern extension of the Severn Valley Railway will remain a dream.
Look out for the Jackfield Tile Museum, which I visited a few summers ago.
