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.

Some classic English Electric power at the end too.

No to mention the fact that, unlike the more northerly former trackbed, there are no stations remaining on this section.
