enjoyable day out kids perfect my lo loved it, views are great stops and you can have a good look around each place and pick up and move to next highly recommend however I think its a bit pricey especially when you have to pay stupidly high priced car parking for the day really sv visitors should be free parking.

This is a unique journey between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, with most of the journeys being with a steam train. The trains and carriages have all been restored, and it is marvellous being pulled by a steam train between the two locations. it is largely run by train enthusiasts, and for most of the time it runs alongside the River Severn....
