Shropshire and Montgomeryshire Railway

From Graces Guide

The Shropshire and Montgomeryshire Light Railway was a railway running from Shrewsbury in England to Llanymynech in Wales.

It opened in 1907, taking over most of the former Potteries, Shrewsbury and North Wales Railway, and was one of the Holman Fred Stephens Railways. It was taken over by the War Department in 1941 and closed in 1960.

The terminus of the line in Shrewsbury was not at the main railway station there, but at a smaller Shrewsbury Abbey station, this being due to the owners of the main railway station refusing its use. The line became part of an army ordnance centre during World War II, and afterwards it became an oil depot. It closed finally in the early 1990s and a new road in the area has been named "Old Potts Way" as a reminder of what was known as the Potts Railway.
