The Telford Steam Railway (TSR) is a heritage railway located at Horsehay, Telford in Shropshire, England, formed in 1976. The railway is operated by volunteers on Sundays and Bank Holidays from Easter to the end of September, and at Christmas. Its official business name is the Telford Horsehay Steam Trust (THST), and it is a registered charity.
Current Passenger Operation:
The preserved railway operates from two stations, (both on the Horsehay site), of the former W&SJR, sited east of a body of water known as Horsehay Pool. Horsehay & Dawley platform sits on a north-south through line, beneath Bridge Road. 150 yards to the west, Spring Village platform is at the end of a short spur off the running line. In between the two station platforms are the sidings and yard used for storing the railway's stock. Beyond Spring Village platform is the former goods transhipment shed, built in 1860, which had originally permitted the transfer of goods from the W&SJR to the Coalbrookdale Company's narrow gauge plateway system. The building now serves as the railway's engine shed.
As of May 2009, the regular passenger timetable consisted of a departure from Spring Village north to the Heath Hill tunnel entrance, and then back along the line, to stop at Horsehay & Dawley. The train then repeats this journey in reverse, for a round trip taking 30 minutes. In addition to the standard gauge running line, the railway also operates a short 2' gauge line adjacent to Horsehay Pool. The Phoenix Model Engineering Society operates a 5" model railway on the Spring Village site. A large model railway and a cafe are situated at Horsehay & Dawley Station.
