The Severn Valley Railway starts its Jubilee year with a new General Manager at the helm.
Helen Smith is the first woman to hold the role and has taken over from Nick Ralls, who left to join the Ironbridge Gorge Museums Trust as Chief Executive.

Helen brings a wealth of experience within the visitor attraction sector, her most recent role being Deputy Director at the Tank Museum in Dorset. Joining the SVR as it celebrates the 50th anniversary of its official opening. Helen said, “The SVR is an incredibly important attraction for the region and I am thoroughly looking forward to building on the great work that has already been achieved by the team here. Taking on the role in this very special year for the railway has even more resonance for me and I can’t wait to lead it into a very bright future, ensuring that it is a fabulous place to work, visit and volunteer.”
