Use it on a regular basis, lovely countryside and steam train, what else can you ask for. Quite a lot of stops and the museum at Highley. Doing the murder mystery trip in December with a meal and looking forwards to it

Stations and trains look wonderful but our train from Kidderminster had a backwards facing tatty engine which spoiled the effect. On board it was very noisy from the other passengers especially one middle-aged man who wittered on non stop.
Booked a day ticket and travelled from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, stopping off at Highly on our return.
A half hour delay or so at Bewdley for unknown reasons and then a short stop for 2 minutes silence as it was Remembrance Sunday which was good...More

As the railway was built originally in the late 1850's as a branch line all stations were built to the rules of the day where disability was not thought of by the builders, all stations were built just for use of normal public. When the present day SVR took over the Railway in the early 1960's they took over the railway as it was built, that is stations not exactly designed to cater for passengers with disabilities, but as the laws changed the railway found ways to improve access to stations for passengers that are disabled. On every Station except Country Park Halt and Northwood Halt there are wheel chair ramps and every train has a wheel chair ramp in one coach to facilitate the carriage of passengers using wheel chairs,the railway has or is rebuilding coaches with wheel chair access plus both train and platform staff will always endeavor to help passengers on and off trains and platforms with any type of disability,as a worker on the Railway and what I have written is nothing to do with the management of the railway, I can not understand what went wrong on your visit as when I work on the railway my colleagues and I make sure any one with any form of a disability is looked after like an able bodied person and are given their dignity to come on the SVR and enjoy their day out just as much as any one else which in this day and age is their right. Our stations can not be redisighned with lifts and under passes due to historical status and cost so we the staff do all the helping of disabled passengers to the best we can do after all we are all volunteers
