Great trains and dedicated volunteers. Would like to see books available on their rolling stock. We found there was not much available. Stations are clean as are the train carriages. If we went back would try the afternoon tea ride as it looked very good

At bridgenorth there is parking for larger vehicles on the slope up to the station. Get there early though as it's limited.

You need to contact the Severn Valley railway directly on their web site or by phoning them, but you may find it sold out now

Sorry didn't get notification. Look on the website they have a varied ticket type. We (family of 5) had the all day unlimited freedom of the line ticket.
