Ultra Light Rail for Ironbridge?

Exciting new proposals to extend a steam railway and provide a new Ultra Light Rail link in the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge are being proposed.

Telford Steam Railway and Pre Metro Operations Ltd are discussing proposals to extend the current steam railway, following the closure of the Ironbridge Power Station in Buildwas and incorporate a narrow gauge light tramway to link into the historic town of Ironbridge.

Local Telford & Wrekin District Councillors are supporting the idea, and MP Lucy Allan is exploring potential Government funding for rail tourism.
