Talk:Severn Valley Railway Timeline 1970-1979

Wasn't Pensnett box rebuilt at Bridgnorth, other pages say so? The Jan 1970 entry says Hampton Loade. I don't want to change something if that's wrong. Help pleae!--Patrick Hearn (talk) 20:47, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

Both entries are correct. The top floor of the Pensnett box was moved to Bridgnorth in November 1968, where it was installed on the (shortened) brick base during 1969.[1] The wooden ground floor sections were left in situ at Pensnett; they were then taken apart in January 1970 and moved to Hampton Loade where they were used in rebuilding the partly demolished box there.[2] --Robin (talk) 21:40, 17 December 2019 (UTC)
