Providing a link between the main line at Stourbridge Junction and the town of Stourbridge this small unit operates the short branch line, running a frequent service.
This proves to be a popular and economic link which maintains the viability of the branch line. It should serve as an example for other short branch lines which could be reinstated throughout the country.
This convenient service gives ready access to main line trains serving Kidderminster and Birmingham.

A record holding canal aqueduct, being the longest in Britain and the highest in the world.
The aqueduct is part of the Llangollen Canal, formerly the Shropshire Union Canal, and carries narrow boat traffic high above the River Dee. The towpath alongside is accessible for pedestrians, having originally served as a path for the horses which pulled the boats.
The aqueduct was completed in 1805. It has 18 stone arches and a cast iron trough.
The design and construction was the work of civil engineers Thomas Telford and William Jessop.
The aqueduct caused a sensation at its time of construction and still delights visitors to the area. Like all canals in Britain, its original purpose was to carry bulk freight. Nowadays it is a very popular route for leisure boating, providing a scenic route with views of the Dee valley.
