Our Fares . . .

Just the ticket!

But which fare is best for you?


To spend a whole day on the Railway, our Freedom of the Line ticket is your best value option. This ticket allows unlimited travel during the day between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth and free entry into The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley.

Freedom of the Line tickets are also valid for use during special events when normal fares apply, such as: Open House Weekend,  Steam on the Road, On the Buses, Classic Vehicle Day, Christmas Gift Fayre and Festive Season Service.

These tickets are not valid during Special Event days where revised fares apply, such as: Spring Steam Gala, Spring Diesel Festival, Step Back to the 1940s, Autumn Steam Gala, Autumn Diesel Gala, Ghost Trains, Steam in Lights or any Santa Experience. 

Freedom of the Line tickets can be purchased in advance at least 5 working days before your visit, so you can avoid the queue when you arrive. By purchasing more than one adult or child ticket, you can pre-book and save.

Small Family: 1 adult and up to 4 children (or dogs) - £175.00. SVR Members - £165.00.

'Freedom of the Line' validity applies.

Dogs can travel in place of a child on the Annual Family Pass.  Still a maximum of 4, but this is now the total of dogs and children. So e.g. 2 children + 2 dogs is acceptable.

These passes include photo-identification. You will be requested to provide passport style photographs (physical or digital) at the time of purchase.
