Parkend in the Forest of Dean is currently the terminus of a preservation line, the Dean Forest Railway, http://www.deanforestrailway.co.uk

Historically it was a small through station on the Severn and Wye Joint Railway with a short branch to transhipment wharfs that allowed tramways to transfer good to the main line. Further back still t was the centre of some major forest industries which were heavily served by tramways. The first image on the blog below ius a map of the tramways at Parkend in its prime as an industrial centre in the Forest.
