Autumn Steam Gala

All-night running, visiting locomotives and so much more!

September 19th - 22nd

Autumn Steam Gala

Our flagship gala in 2019 is planned to be bigger and better than ever, with its famed all-night running, array of visiting locomotives and intensive timetable.

The event will celebrate the return to service of BR Standard 4 No. 75069, and we're hoping for at least three visiting locomotives...

From the home-fleet, we expect the following locomotives to be in steam: 1450, 1501, 2857, 7714, 34027 Taw Valley, 43106 and 75069. On-hire Large Prairie No. 4144 and former resident No. 6960 Raveningham Hall is also expected to join the event.

Attractions include:

  • Overnight running on Friday and Saturday with Pannier Tanks No. 1501 and No. 7714.
  • Friday morning express from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, non-stop.
  • Guild of Railway Artists exhibition at Kidderminster Railway Museum, celebrating its 40th anniversary.
  • Early morning walk-on breakfast train from Bridgnorth and Kidderminster on Saturday and Sunday. Additional charge applies.
  • Autotrains with No. 1450 and Autocoach No. 178 between Bridgnorth and Hampton Loade, and local services between Kidderminster, Bewdley and Arley. 
  • Goods trains; daytime Thursday and Friday, and Saturday evenings.
  • Eardington Halt open for visits from 9am - 6pm (trains will not stop here).
  • Frequent service of full line trains, with locomotives swapping at Bridgnorth.
  • Paddock Railway and Coalyard Miniature Railway in steam.
  • Our Artist in Residence, Rob Rowland, will be at Bridgnorth Station in the Waiting Room on Platform 2.
