Every station is lovely, worth getting off at them all, Bewdley and bridgnorth both worth a visit, Highley, has the museum and the Ship inn for lovely meals

Brilliant weekend as usual, so much thought and effort is put into this event. Great to travel back in time. Loved the 1940's wedding and sing songs on the trains. Great value for money. Can't wait for next year. Once again well done SVR

My grandson was fascinated by the fire in the fire box making the steam to drive the engine. We've been on the SVR several times and it never fails to entertain.

We enjoyed this, but I have to say it's not the best steam railway we have been on though. And at £60 not one we will be rushing back too. I appreciate all the work put in by the staff and volunteers and the trains and stations are authentic and well kept. Just a bit too overpriced though. One thing... More

Great day out on the railway, well preserved railway and nicely kept stations all decorated and set up for the war. The train journey itself is great, long enough to offer value for money with lovely countryside views. Also a great view of West Midlands Safari! The only downside is I wish the line was elsewhere! Didn't like Bewdley or... More
