Spring Steam gala

The Severn Valley Railway season opens with its Spring Steam Gala, which sees an array of locomotives in action all along the county’s heritage railway line. Visiting engines from across the country will join in with the resident trains, running a busy passenger service and stopping off at each of the historic stations along the way. The Engine House Visitor Centre will be hosting the latest exhibitions, or you can pop into the Railwayman’s Arms to sample one of the real ales on offer.

This year, the Severn Valley Railway is celebrating 50 years since its first passenger services ran in May 1970 and it is planning a weekend of festivities to celebrate.

Steam into spring on Thursday 16 to 19 April. For the latest event news, see svr.co.uk.
