From a scrapyard ‘no-hoper’ to the last of its kind – a range of locomotives with a real story to tell will star at the Severn Valley Railway’s Spring Steam Gala, which runs from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 March.
The heritage railway’s 2018 curtain-raising event will feature a truly eclectic range of visiting locomotives from across the country, carrying out intensive passenger services throughout the event, alongside many of the SVR’s resident fleet of engines.
Visitors can experience attractions up and down the line, including a busy timetable of local trains and autotrains running between stations into the evenings as well as goods trains and the Coalyard Miniature Railway and Paddock Garden Railway in operation. The Engine House Visitor Centre and Kidderminster Railway Museum will also be open to explore.
Later in the year, young travellers can see PAW Patrol favourites Chase and Skye, who will be appearing at the Engine House over the weekend of 28 and 29 April.
