More on the Snailbeach District Railways

As an antidote to some of the recent nonsense about this line - see in particular the comments on this posting - here is its genuine history. All the links can be found on the relevant page of the Shropshire Mines Trust website.

I present:
  • an article from The Railway Magazine (November & December 1944) by H. F. G. Dalston;
  • a short history of the line from the Colonel Stephens Railway Museum;
  • a survey of the line's locomotives from the Trust itself;
  • proof that the line has a chequered history.
