View northward, towards Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury: ex-GW Shrewsbury - Bewdley line, closed 9/9/63, but operated (south of Bridgnorth) since 1970 by the Severn Valley (Heritage) Railway, Hampton Loade being its southern terminus until 1974. Here in 1951, Collett '4575' 2-6-2T No. 4578 (built 2/27) is heading a typical GW branch-line train.
