Built as part of the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway, the southern section of the route was mainly rural. In contrast, the remainder passes through an area with a fascinating industrial past. Part of the GWR for many decades, the great contrasts are revealed, as are the changes in rolling stock over the years.
