Telford Steam Railway

Book Tickets Online


Telford Steam Railway operates over a portion of the Wellington and Severn Junction railway (W&SJR). The line to Lightmoor and beyond to Buildwas was constructed by the Wenlock, Craven Arms and Lightmoor Extension railway. Both of these became a part of the Wellington to Craven Arms Railway. For most of its working life the line was operated by the Great Western Railway and subsequently the Western Region of British Railways. Passenger services between Buildwas and Wellington ended on 23 July 1962, pre-dating the publication of the 'Beeching Report' in March 1963.  Our railway operates between three stations of the former W&SJR.


The railway's regular passenger timetable consists of a departure from Spring Village north to Lawley Village and then back along the line to stop at Horsehay & Dawley. The train then repeats this journey in reverse, for a round trip taking 50 minutes.
In addition to the standard gauge running line, the railway also operates a short 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge line adjacent to Horsehay Pool. The Phoenix Model Engineering Society operates a 5" miniature railway on the Spring Village site, as well as the Railway's Shop and Ticket Office in Spring Village Station. A large model railway and the Furnaces' Tearoom are situated at Horsehay & Dawley Station.
