Mostly as a reminder to myself, there are several "authentic" gradient diagrams in signal boxes along the line that might make nice additions to this page, and Hampton Loade (I think?) has one for the Bridgnorth-Shrewsbury section as a bonus. --Danny252 (talk) 19:18, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Mileages on the Loop Line

It has been puzzling me for some time that the OS maps at the turn of the century show mileposts which do not come close to matching the ELRs, being almost half a mile from where they should be. It just occurred to me that the reason might be because the reversal might have been at Bewdley rather than Kidderminster. Measuring the relevant distances on that basis appears to be a perfect fit, hence the somewhat speculative note I have added. Any firm evidence to support this assumption would be welcome.--Robin (talk) 16:47, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

Additional note: later maps such as the OS 6 inch map of the Bewdley area, 1929 Edition, show the mileposts in positions which match the ELRs (and those restored in preservation), the first one from the Bewdley end being approximately by the current location of the elephant house (milepost 138).--Robin (talk) 17:46, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
