Is the section between Bewdley North and South signal boxes officially double track? I seem to recall being told that once.

Yes, the main lines are double track signalled using Absolute Block. The Back Road is a single line block section and the Rock Siding is a yard. --WillSalt (talk) 16:28, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm trying to make the article a bit more comprehensive, but not sure of the best way to go about it. I've added a "Points of interest" category, trying not to turn it in to just a dry list of features and hoping it will complement, not just duplicate the narrative of the summary.
Ultimately, I'd like the page to be interesting reading for anyone waiting for a train who wants to know a bit more about what they can see around them. Any suggestions? I'll keep working on Bewdley and if we can agree on a format that looks about right, we can then move on to the other stations. --Graham Phillips 110 (talk) 09:11, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

I've added a table of traffic revenue for the years 1903-1938. Now obviously I didn't go out and collate these myself, I rewrote them from a book, but my understanding of copyright is that the content of tables of data is not copyrightable, so retyping and reformatting that data for a website is completely above board. Does anyone have any thoughts? --WillSalt (talk) 13:04, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Wyre Forest Line closure

From this page: "1962: Passenger services to Tenbury ceased on 29 July (services beyond Tenbury to Woofferton had ended a year earlier)." From Wyre_Forest_Line#Closure "After July 1961, one passenger train ran from Kidderminster to Tenbury each day. Passenger services ceased a year later on 1 August 1962." Has anyone got a reference for either date? --Graham Phillips 110 (talk) 20:03, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Citations on this are a bit of a minefield! Beddoes and Smith quotes the last passenger train back to Tenbury Wells as being No. 3619 on 31 July 1962 which accords with the closure date of 1 August 1962, however there are two picture captions of 3619 which say Saturday 31 August 1962. 31 July 1962 was a Tuesday and 31 August was a Friday according to my calendar. Also both Beddoes/Smith and Magner state the last through train to Woofferton was on Saturday 28 July 1961. 28 July 1961 was a Friday, so either the day or the date is incorrect in both sources. --Robin (talk) 23:03, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
