Trains & Trams

Half-term family fun at The Engine House!

February 18th - 26th

Trains & Trams

The Railway re-opens on Febuary 18th for half-term, and we welcome back the Manchester Model Tramway group who will be displaying and operating their superb model tramway layout at the The Engine House Visitor Centre at Highley.

Mon - Fri: Timetable A   Sat: Timetable B   Sun: Timetable C

Come along and 'have-a-go' at operating the miniature trams
(subject to availability) during February half-term! The models trams are built to a scale of 5/8 inch to a foot with a gauge of 27/16 inch, which is unique to the group and has historical origins. The tramway was hand-built by members, past and present and is a magnificent sight to behold.

A fun themed quiz for the children will be available at The Engine House, alongside the interactive exhibits and outdoor play area.

The Paddock Railway at Hampton Loade will be open on February 18th & 19th.

STOP PRESS: Due to the failure of the DMU (20/02/17), all three services on Timetable A will be steam hauled.

February 18th will also see the launch of two all-new exhibitions in The Engine House:
  • The Art of the Railway Poster – telling the story of how the ‘big four’ railway companies looked for ways of promoting travel by train to the general public, showcasing some beautiful original posters of the era.
  • Signs of the Times - a fascinating display of London Underground and Great Western Railway signs, courtesy of London Transport Museum and Kidderminster Railway Museum.
Unfortunately, our third exhibition; 2007 Storm Damage - 10 Years on, will not be ready in time due to an overwhelming response from our Volunteers and members of the public alike, who have supplied us with memories and anecdotes. The exhibition will therefore launch at our Spring Steam Gala. We are sorry for any disappointment this will cause, but we want to ensure the exhibition is the best it can possibly be!
  • 2007 Storm Damage – 10 Years on – we look back at the damage inflicted on the Severn Valley Railway by a freak weather event in the Summer of 2007. The exhibition looks at the damage and the extensive work and funding involved to rebuild our wonderful railway.
The exhibitions will feature in The Engine House until the end of 2017.
