Spring Steam Gala Updates

'Flying Pig' joins the fun! (Update 15/3/18)

Unique 'Flying Pig' No. 43106 will work the 8.45am service from Kidderminster, returning from Bridgnorth at 11.00am instead of 7F No. 53808 on Friday only.

The final version of the timetable is available on the special event page.

7F to the rescue to replace B1… (Update 13/3/18)

We are truly grateful to our friends at the West Somerset Railway and Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust for the last minute hire of 7F No. 53808 for our Spring Steam Gala this weekend.

Visiting for the first time in British Railways black, the 1925-built 2-8-0 will cover the services scheduled to be hauled by B1 No. 1264 on all three days.

Joining us for a flying visit, the engine last steamed along the Valley in 2014.

No. 53808 joins fellow visiting engines Kign No. 6023 King Edward II, B12 No. 8572, A1 No. 60163 Tornado, BR Standard 4MT No. 80072 and Haydock Foundry Bellerophon for our BIGGEST steam gala yet! Pre-book your tickets now.

We bet you didn’t see that coming?

Unfortunately we have been advised over the weekend that LNER B1 4-6-0 No. 1264 will not be able to attend our Spring Steam Gala from March 16th - 18th. (Update 12/3/18)

The Thompson B1 Locomotive Trust indicate that although the winter maintenance work has been completed, there are still some jobs left to undertake before the locomotive would be fit to visit other heritage railways or work over Network Rail.

This announcement will not affect the movement of No 60163 Tornado from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, and Tornado is expected to arrive at the Severn Valley Railway this week to run as scheduled.
