The Little Railway
With BIG Plans
Telford Steam Railway is thinking big with an ambitious project ‘Steaming to Ironbridge’, which would see steam trains returning to the Ironbridge Gorge.
The railway wants to extend southwards from its recently opened Lawley Village station, and create an expansion of the TSR’s current operation into a major tourism attraction for the region.
The dream is to have a network of nearly 17kms of track, running steam trains from the new development of Lawley Village, with its close connections to the M54 it will run through to the world heritage site of Coalbrookdale to Buildwas on the banks of the River Severn and have a connection to network rail via Lightmoor and Madeley Jct.
We also plan to connect our southern terminus to the very heart of the town of Ironbridge with a narrow gauge tramway.
