The West Midland Railway operated the Severn Valley Railway from opening on 1 February 1862. Prior to that date the proposed timetable was published. As well as the service between Shrewsbury and Worcester, it also included connections from Shrewsbury northwards to Manchester and Liverpool, from Worcester southwards to London and Bristol and from Hartlebury northwards to Kidderminster, Wolverhampton and Birmingham.

The opening timetable refers to 'Hampton', the original name of Hampton Loade station. The full name was adopted shortly afterwards. Eardington did not open until 1868.
