47549 Madeley Junction 15 August 1988

In the days when Shrewsbury had direct loco-hauled trains from London, 47549 Royal Mail approaches Madeley Junction on 15 August 1988 with the 1J24 10:40 Euston to Shrewsbury InterCity service. The bridge in the background is the then recently opened Telford bypass link road, with the original farm occupation bridge just beyond.
