It is doubtful whether any railway in the British Isles has had such a chequered history as the subject of the present essary, for convenience bearing the title by which the line is now more familiarly known. The efficient operating methods, well-ballasted track and floodlit marshalling yards of the railway today present a picture very different from the grass-grown rusticity of the S. & M. beloved of light railway enthusiasts of earlier days; and hemmed in as it is by main line railways, the system has become a self-contained unit which it is hard to imagine as part of a through trunk route to the West Coast and Ireland. Thus, however, it was conceived by the over-enthusiastic railway promoters of the last century; and during the translation from dream to reality the railway was left for thirty years to silence and verdant decay. The Shropshire & Montgomeryshire, in passing through these phases in turn, has maintained its individuality and is still affectionately known to the locals as "The Potts"; a tribute indeed to character and, it is felt, sufficient justification for the commitment to paper of its story.
