You don't want to do that - you'll hate it. R-

Glad to be of help to you both.
A few years ago I stopped at Welshpool and cycled up to Criggion and followed the Shropshire & Montgomery route over the Bailey bridge at Crewgreen and then Kinnerly and then to Llanymynech where I looked at the Lime Kiln etc.
All very interesting with a ride back to Welshpool partly along the old canal towpath which was a bit rough !
I have a couple of books on the S&M, perhaps your Grandfather is in one of the photos.
Regards, Colin.

I have family at Camber near where an old tramway shelter can still be seen.
I wish it was still going!

Hi Brian.
I also have the Peter Johnson book and also "Branch line to Shrewsbury" by Mitchell & Smith.

Captain Bubble.
I visited the Camber station in July where the tracks are still in the concrete roadway for quite a distance.

The Colonel's railways are good at leaving track behind. As well as Camber there is track at Snailbeach and I also found a set of points on the Ashover line in the Quarry many years ago !
Regards, Colin.
