Telford Steam Railway
The Telford Steam Railway is a small industrial railway which runs in a “Y” formation from its base at Spring Village. Although formed in 1976, the railway is still under a mile in length, and offers short passenger rides.
A modest extension through a tunnel onto Lawley Common is currently under construction. However the railway has ambitious proposals to run through to Ironbridge.
Since 1999 the railway has been home to an operational Class 104 2-car set (although it was only used as hauled stock between 2004 & 2011). Two further vehicles joined in 2000 & 2001, but these have never operated in preservation.
The line had also made use of privately owned experimental 2nd generation Railbus RB004, however this vehicle was sold on in 2011.
In 2012 the fleet expanded again with the arrival of a Class 108 2-car set. This was part of a much wider strategy which saw the railway improve its facilities and rolling stock collection considerably.
