(1) An article in the August 1979 of the Railway Magazine quotes a service of four trains, two from Birmingham New Street and two from Wolverhampton, on Sundays from 27th May to 2nd September inclusive - details of the others are required. The reason for the trains seems to have been to commemorate the start of construction of the Iron Bridge in 1779.
(2) Pilotman working over the Up Goods from Lightmoor Jn to a temporary platform named Telford Coalbrookdale which was on the Ironbridge Power Station branch 'Up' track at MP 161.
