Wellington Station
Wellington Station
Wellington station retains an air of the Great Western Railway although it is much diminished from its heyday when, in addition to the main line between Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury, there were branches to Market Drayton, Stafford, Coalport and Much Wenlock. The remains of some of the additional platforms required for these services can be seen in this view. Since 1986, when Telford Central opened, it hasn't even been the principal station in the district. Here, in one of those curious anomalies the railway network sometimes throws up, a Transport for Wales service departs for Shrewsbury on a working from Birmingham International - a journey entirely within England. In fact, the train would normally run to Aberystwyth but the line west of Shrewsbury was closed for bridge reconstruction work.
