A must see for all UK travellers. Everything done by voluntary work. Spotless. 18km of rlwy. A trip down memory lane. View the Sir Keith Park engine (named after the Kiwi born leader of WW1 Battle of Britain Ace pilots).

We went with friends to the forties weekend and had the best day! We started at Highley and travelled to various stations along the lines. It was fabulous to see all the folks dressed up in costumes from the era (including Winston Churchill and Montgomery) loads to see along the line, travelling in a variety of trains, all beautifully restored...

We spent a few hours on a rainy summer afternoon traveling the length, and back, of the line. The coaches were comfortable and well refurbished. Each station looked worth an explore but we didn't have much time so settled for a pint at the end of the line before traveling back. There was a great guide with details on everything... More

The Severn Valley railway runs from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster. It is very well maintained and is run mainly by voluntary staff who are very friendly and helpful. We went on the 40's weekend - which was fun - despite the downpour of rain. During the days from 24th-26th September, "Tornado" and "Flying Scotsman" are due to be there. There are... More

Lovely railway. The station buildings are really special and everything is kept in good order. Staff friendly and the steam trains are impressive. The journey passes through some lovely countryside. The only downer was the price - £50 for 2 adults and a 13 year old, ouch!
