Peep Behind the Scenes

Signalboxes, Engine Sheds, Workshops and so much more - access all areas!

July 15th

Peep Behind the Scenes

Ever wondered how a Signalbox works, or how we change the tyres on a steam locomotive? Or where our carriages are stored or what happens when we need to fix a wagon? All of these questions, and more, can be answered at Peep Behind the Scenes!

We'll be opening our doors to areas not normally available to the public for one day only, giving you the chance to see all of the hard work, behind the scenes, that often goes unseen.

Taking place in the background, there's more to the Railway that meets the eye; such as day-to-day maintenance and the skilled restoration work, often covered with panelling and many coats of varnish and paint!

Attractions & open sites include:

  • Kidderminster Signalbox, Carriage Works, Diesel Depot & Turntable, Carriage Shed and Museum Signalbox
  • Visit the cab of a Class 52 'Western' at Kidderminster
  • Bewdley North Signalbox, Paint Shop and Wagon Works
  • Wickham Trolley rides at Highley
  • Access to the cabs of No. 600 Gordon and Standard Tank No. 80079 in The Engine House
  • Bridgnorth Signalbox, Locomotive Works, Paintshop & Machine Shop
  • Steam-hauled goods train with No. 1501 or No. 7714 along the whole length of the line, with demonstration shunting at Kidderminster and Bridgnorth
Subject to operational requirements, the attractions will be open from 10.30am, with last admission at 4.30pm, and closing at 5pm (unless otherwise stated in the event leaflet).
