"SEVERN VALLEY RAILWAY.—We find that this project, although delayed, is not abandoned, the promoters having now put themselves in a position to proceed with it as soon as the proper time shall arrive; the connexion which the proposed line will give is an important one, and the districts to be accommodated by it much in want of a railway. We observe that the undertaking has the support of all the interests affected by it." Sun (London) - Monday 31 July 1848, on the British Newspaper Archive
