I'd like to think that the SVR were having a bad day today, We had a round trip of 150 miles to ride behind a steam engine. The 10.30am from Kidderminster was scheduled to be steam; the worker at the station entrance said it will be a steamer and the ticket office worker confirmed it would be a steam engine... More

We were looking for a good train spotting experience over the busy weekend and we were not disappointed. We bought the all day rover ticket and travelled the full length of the line on a variety of engines. Each station stop offered a pub or a coffee and cake or tea and a bun opportunity, with walks beside the tracks.... More

As a local I support the Severn Valley Railway but the cost really does mount up if you are taking a family. I took a party of 4 adults including myself and 4 children but unfortunately I can't remember the exact cost only that I was rather surprised even though the lovely staff at Arley Station tried their best to...

This was booked through Newmarket Holidays as part of a package, although you can book directly through the SVR website. Firstly Newmarket charge £150 pp. (add £20 for single supplement) The coach began picking up at 9am and arrived at the Holiday Inn Walsall at around 3.30pm so pretty long journey if you got on the coach in the early...

Took the steam train from Kidderminster to Bewdley. What an amazing experience! Lovely team of volunteers looking after this impressive heritage and happy to chat. Loads of photo opportunities, including seeing the baby elephant and a rhino at The West Midlands Zoo, on our journey.

We visited midweek starting our trip from Bridgenorth, we arrived about 30 mins. before our train was due to depart and planned to get a snack before we boarded the train. We headed straight to the Railwayman’s Arms and I asked if they served sandwiches. The barman informed me that they only served pork pies and directed me to the... More

My wife and I visited the Severn valley railway to attend their Autumn steam gala, staying in Bridgnorth. It was excellent I can still smell the steam! On the Thursday we did a brake van ride, (Pre booked), from Kidderminster back to Bridgnorth, a bit pricey but I though it was worth it but I dont think the better half... More

We visited the Severn Valley Railway on Thursday, what a great day out. Our journey started at Bridgnorth, plenty of parking and helpful staff. I had the camera out straight away and took pictures of a Western diesel hydraulic. A good journey out to Kidderminster followed with elephants in the adjacent field at the Safari Park. Really pleased to see... More

Great day out on the Severn Valley Railway. Each way takes over an hour on some lovely old trains. Everyone we came across was really friendly. Great day out.

First class day out on the railway. Chatted to the volunteers working on the restoration of the engines. Rode the trains and finished with a meal in the station restaurant.
