The same picture appears in The Tenbury & Bewdley Railway (Beddoes & Smith) page 51. The loco on Wribbenhall Viaduct is 2-4-0 No 180, ex WMR.

Also in Beddoes & Smith, pages 78-79. Dated between May 1908 and February 1911. The train was a Woofferton-Kidderminster-Birmingham service; the rear coach was a through LNWR coach to Birmingham New Street via Smethwick (the LNWR coach working ended in 1917). Beyond is a GWR Steam Railmotor, possibly No. 91.

Not the railway itself, but a railway connection and still recognisable today.

Information from Facebook: Beyer goods 0-6-0 no. 334 approaching Bewdley from Shrewsbury in the early 1900s.
The foot bridge, erected in 1892, was removed in the 1930s it served the summer house, Wribbenhall, as it connected that property with a footpath into Northwood Lane.

334 was built by Beyer Peacock in 1864. Nabarro's book has a picture of another Beyer Goods, no. 338, shunting at Bewdley circa 1925, by which time it would have been almost sixty years old.

"Sambourne" Viaduct. Postcard posted in 1910.
The arch across the pond is still there and visible from the train. I think I read once that it was built as a folly and never served any practical purpose.

21 December 1959. The original caption on Facebook describes this as having arrived from Tenbury. A short discussion on the Unofficial SVR Page unanimously concluded that it is actually heading to Tenbury.

Undated and uncredited from "Wribbenhall, the day before yesterday" by the Bewdley Hisorical Research Group. It looks like the short platform canopy, which would make it pre 1900.
