Love train travel, but get a little motion sick?

Lucky for you, you can now buy the Old Railway Station in Shropshire, England, for £950,000, which comes complete with two fully-equipped train carriages.

On sale through Nick Tart estate agents for £950,000, the company calls the prospect of buying the "landmark" property "an extremely rare opportunity," and a chance to continue the previous owners' holiday lettings business by renting out bedrooms the property.

"Station House is currently a main family home and was once the station for Coalport, which was opened in 1863 and served the local community," the website states.

Located two miles from the historic Iron Bridge and an hour from Birmingham, the property sits in the famous World Heritage Site of the Ironbridge Gorge. It has grounds of over two acres with a lawned garden area to front and sides, and "extensive wooded grounds with a woodland walk."

The station was closed in 1963, but had been used as a family home ever since.

Its former owners used their experience working in interior design to "restore the beauty of the station and develop a holiday letting business by bringing on site vintage MK1 Great Western Railway carriages and renovating the grounds," according to the website.

Called "Coalport Station Holidays," the business has been "extremely profitable" and "year on year profits have increased" for over 13 years. "This is a business with all the systems in place ready for a seamless transition to the new owners," the website states.
