We treated a nephew to a day out here and combined it with a 1940s weekend held on the stations. Whilst not cheap if you buy a rover ticket it does represent a brilliant day out and is good value for money. The steam trains were in great condition and for a youngster who had never seen one before it... More

I thought it was about time I took a journey to Bridgnorth by steam train. I wasn't disappointed it brought back fond memories of days gone by. We got off the train at Highley to visit the train museum. After an interesting walk around we decided to eat at the cafe. The food was disappointing. I chose a baked potato... More

Really enjoyed our day out at the Severn valley for the first time. Loved travelling in first class! It was a very hot day but stopped at Bridgnorth for an icecream & lunch. Also went to the museum near the ship inn, the ship inn was lovely to sit outside & the view was fab overlooking the river. All in... More

A great experience. A light hearted look at a working railway during the second world war. Packed with reanactors. Runs annually on the last weekend in June and first weekend in July. Plenty of 1940,s entertainment including a battle at Highly station and wedding at Arley. Highly recommended

All the station staff are friendly and more than ready to talk and explain things. Upper Arley has the most beautiful station with a fabulous flower display in season.

We had a freedom of the line ticket for Sunday of the 40s weekend. I have to say I was not impressed. I have been to a few 40s weekends around the country but this was the worst. It is over an hours ride in the steam train between the main stations and not a deal happening at the smaller... More

opiumgirll bromsgrove wrote about this event back in 2013 and i am afraid nothing has changed. The lack of atmosphere on the train made my partner fall to sleep, why did they not have music playing on the train, why not have the german military board the train as though it had been captured to create some excitement. the trains...
