Straddling the border between England and Wales, the railway linking Shrewsbury to Chester has been serving the communities along its length since 1848, as well as being, for over a century, a key component of the Great Western Railway’s main line from the Mersey to London. It still remains busy with passenger trains and some freight, so it is not lost in the conventional sense, however, this pictorial journey along what remains an attractive and scenic line focuses on its heyday in the age of steam hauled-trains. Whilst much of the infrastructure of the steam age has been swept away, the line is still busy and remains an important transport link.
