Calendar & Timetable  Top Travel Tips

Trains are running daily, giving you the chance to experience a bygone age in the beautiful Severn Valley Railway.

Kidderminster

  • The Coalyard Miniature Railway, our miniature ride-on railway at Kidderminster, will be operating on selected dates.
  • Along our line, we have lots of interesting structures built with local stone which was quarried along the River Severn. A free Geofest exhibition telling the story of viaducts, road bridges and station buildings is running from 26th - 29th May at Kidderminster Station.

The Engine House, Highley

Entry to The Engine House is FREE with 'Freedom of the Line' tickets. Marvel at the massive locomotives, delve into the history of Britain's railways, enjoy themed, interactive exhibitions where you can sort the mail and meet the engine that collided with a camel!

  • #SVRRocks: decorate your very own rocks or other found items in nature and hide them in various locations to brighten someone’s day. You can use paint, chalk, crayons, sharpies, or whatever- as long as it has a coat of sealer over it to help preserve the art. On the back of your masterpiece you can write #SVRRocks and post a picture to our Facebook page. You can also write Re-Hide Me for someone else to hide your #SVRRocks. If you find a piece of art that you can’t bear to part with then please feel free to keep it.
  • Find the Gnome Trail: some naughty Gnomes have escaped from nearby Gardens, and have hidden themselves around The Engine House. Can you find them all to win a prize?
