UPDATE – Ironbridge Power Station Redevelopment
22nd May 2019
Telford Steam Railwaay has a meeting with network rail next week to discuss ways forward including accessing the redundant ‘Up’ line meaning both Telford Steam Railway and Network Rail trains could operate, an option Harworth are very keen to see happen.
The railway from the Albert Edward bridge to the coal drops will be retained. The coal drops will be the base for the new station which will, as can be seen from the plans. sit right in the heart of the new local centre.
Overall the plans are an excellent fit with Telford Steam Railway’s aspirations. Telford Steam Railway has suggested to Harworth that an opportunity may be being missed by not continuing the railway to the Much Wenlock road and Buildwas Abbey, talks will continue as the developments progresses.
