Description
The West Midland Railway was formed in 1860 by the merge of 4 railways, and then absorbed 2 more in 1862, before being absorbed itself by the Great Western Railway in 1863.

The West Midland Railway was formed by the merge of:
Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford Railway (Opened 1854)
Worcester and Hereford Railway (Opened 1859)
Coleford, Monmouth, Usk and Pontypool Railway (Opened 1850)
Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway (Opened 1850)

In 1862, it absorbed 2 more railways.
Leominstrer and Kington Railway (Opened 1856)
Severn Valley Railway (Opened 1862)

Today, the Newport - Abergavenny - Hereford line is still in use for South - North Wales Services
The Worcester - Hereford line is still in use for services to London and Birmingham

This Map allows you to recreate the southwestern portion of the West Midland Railway, between Newport and Worcester. As well as the section of the South Wales Railway between Newport and Gloucester. The Midland Railway line between Ashchurch and Gloucester can also be built.

Experimental map sizes are required for this map.

I helped him with the placements on that map during his livestreams! Best of luck on the map!

Of course, but sadly that one isn't included in this map. Check out Bumbling Brit's map for the SVR, and I am also planning a Hereford and Birmingham - Shrewsbury map

Dont forget the Severn Valley is still in use as a steam heritage railway!
