Heritage railways in Shropshire
Relive days gone by with a trip on one of Shropshire's historic
Severn Valley Railway
This route, originally operated between 1862 and 1963, now
offers you the opportunity to take a ride on an old-fashioned steam
train. Trains run between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster through the
beautiful Severn Valley Country Parkand the Wyre Forest throughout the summer, with
special timetables at other times of the year.
The Severn Valley Railway can be used as a rail link to reach
Bridgnorth from mainline rail
connections in Kidderminster.
Visit the Severn Valley Railway
website for a full timetable.
Why not combine your train trip with a lovely cycle ride? A
fantastic off-road stretch of National Cycle Network route 45,
the Mercian Way, runs alongside the Severn Valley Railway through
the country park.
Cambrian Heritage Railway
Passenger services on the section of the Cambrian railway
through Oswestry ended in 1966. Now the line is gradually being
restored and short steam train rides are available from the old
stations in Llynclys and Oswestry. Combine your visit with a trip
to the Transport
Museum in Oswestry.
Visit the Cambrian Heritage
Railway website for train times.
