Severn Valley Railway

Club Outing: 12th October 2003

Five club members set off at 9.00am on Sunday 12th October 2003 to the Kidderminster end of the SVR (Severn Valley Railway). Arriving in good time we boarded the first train of the day 9.55am. We were guided by the experienced travellers with us John and Bernard who suggested the itinerary.

To take in the full experience of travelling on the SVR, we stayed on the train until its journey's end, not alighting until Bridgnorth. With plenty of time before the return train, we made the short walk to Bridgnorth Town Centre, passing the Fenicular Railway linking Bridgenorth High Town with Bridgenorth Low Town (opens at 12.00).

Catching the next train back we alighted at Hampton Loade. Coinciding with the Classic Car and Bike Day, we had the bonus of viewing at each station a variety of classic cars; MGB's & MGBGT; Rover P4,5 and 6's, Humber Sceptre, Riley's, Aston Martin, Ford Capri Mk1, and many others too many to mention.

From Hampton Loade we travelled to Bewdley spending the time scouring the second hand book and trade shops at the station, before returning back to Highly.

Highly gave us an opportunity to view the interesting history of the area at the visitor centre and to refuel with the Hot Dogs on offer.

From Highly we made our final journey back to Kidderminster. Took a last look at the last bargains on offer at the trade stand before travelling home.

To find out more about the SVR and the events they have visit the SVR website.
