National Volunteers Week

Back in 1965, a group of enthusiasts had a fantastic idea to preserve a railway in the Severn Valley. 49 years later, the Bridgnorth to Kidderminster line is thriving, better than ever before!

To mark National Volunteers Week, we are celebrating everything that is great about the SVR and our Volunteers.

On a Summer Saturday we need over 80 volunteers to run a train service, including: 13 drivers and firemen, 7 guards, 12 signalmen, 6 booking office clerks, 12 members of station staff, locomotive cleaners and so many more...

Throughout our 49 year history, Volunteers have helped achieve 'miracles' and in preparation for our 2015 50th Anniversary Celebrations, we'd like to hear from you.

Whether you're a volunteer, visitor or supporter, we would like you to share your stories and photographs from your time at the Severn Valley Railway.

Want to get involved? Then get into contact today:

We look forward to hearing from you.
nd one more thing... THANK YOU!!
