We started our journey at Kidderminister, and we were greeted by the stain glass roof over the concorse, which had been beautifully restored. There were four steam locomotives in... read more

Having never been on the SVR before, we decided to whilst holidaying in the area recently. We've been on other similar railways closer to home, and thought that this one would be something similar. The route and the steam engines are by far the best part of the experience, following the river for most of the way gave us some... More

We started our journey at Kidderminister, and we were greeted by the stain glass roof over the concorse, which had been beautifully restored. There were four steam locomotives in service, and the railway kept to its timetable. We stopped at the Engine House in Highley, which broke off our day nicely. Our only problem was the amount of wasps that... More

Reminiscing about the past. I remember taking the severn Valley steam train from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster (return) with my two Daughters who were little people then. Now back and they've grown up but my Grandson is now with us. We pretended we were on the Hogwarts Express heading for Hogwarts, we bought along some chocolate frogs (Freddos). Fab service, fab...

Many years since our last trip on the SVR - which was a Santa Special! This time a short (15 minutes) single trip from Bewdley to Arley on a hot summers day - so we could walk back along the river to Bewdley. Staff very helpful and firendly, but it is really the hardware that steals the show! Some of... More

The experience allowed 6 guests to go with him and we all visited yesterday . It was a long day starting at 8.00 with a safety briefing and finished at around 3.30 . Dad had... More

I have been visiting the SVR for 50 years and it still delivers. Busy but well run and with a variety of traction, it is a step back in time for all ages. The young will learn and the old will remember. Alight at one of the intermediate stations for refreshments and a look at the well kept country stations.... More
