The Society is running an excursion to the scenic Severn Valley Railway on Saturday 17 June 2017. We plan to connect with the 10:50 steam train from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster and participants will be given a Day Rover ticket which enables unlimited travel on the railway for the rest of the day and free admission to the Engine House at Highley. The Engine House houses a number of steam locomotives and there is a first floor café and balcony with a view of the line. There should also be ample time to visit the interesting riverside town of Bewdley or Kidderminster, where there is a railway museum adjacent to the station. More details about the railway can be found at Severn Valley Railway web site. SVR train timetables can be viewed, move through the calendar for the day

The 16:15 train from Kidderminster is the last train of the day, which is due to arrive back into Bridgnorth at 17:25, and the coach will depart from outside Bridgnorth station at 17:45.
