About us:

The Severn Valley Railway is a full-size standard-gauge railway line, running regular, mainly steam-hauled, passenger trains between Kidderminster in Worcestershire and Bridgnorth in Shropshire, a distance of approximately sixteen miles.

A remarkable feature of the Railway is that it is very largely run by unpaid volunteers, with a paid staff of around 150 people responsible for administration and commercial activities, plus regular track and rolling stock maintenance.

Through the year, volunteers appear on the Railway to perform many tasks, including repairing and repainting stations, reconstruction of viaducts and bridges, and rebuilding locomotives and rolling stock, not to mention operating the trains.
