Shrewsbury and Wellington Joint Railway

The Shrewsbury and Wellington Joint Railway was owned by the London North Western Railway and the Great Western Railway. Its line ran from Shrewsbury (Abbey Foregate station, not to be confused with Abbey station, also in Shrewsbury) to Wellington. Abbey Foregate also acted as a junction, with chords to Shrewsbury station and to the direct line to Wales.

Construction, between 1846 and 1849, was a joint effort between the Shropshire Union Railways and the Shrewsbury and Birmingham Railway

Of the five stations of the joint line (Abbey Foregate, Upton Magna, Walcot, Admaston and Wellington) only Wellington is still open.
