Will the plans be on display all day at Bridgnorth? Some of us from a distance will be away home by 5pm, and indeed the last train back to Kidderminster is at 5-25 so even if the Steering Committee members are not around all day it would be useful if we could view something during the day.
If there is a good turnout, is the Bridgnorth buffet going to accommodate everyone? The steering group accounts for thirteen places!

Thanks

Rob

I stand corrected ( and presumably "stand" in the boilershop!). The last train back to Kidderminster still leaves at 5-25.

Or is this just a meeting for "Bridgnorth" people? I thought it would be an open meeting for all members and shareholders

Solution: email for a prospectus.

I don't think it's 5:25 as it's the diesel gala. I think you should check the timetable for the last train from bridgnorth

18.09
18.50
19.35
20.30
21.00

I think the above departures from Bridgnorth on Saturday after 6pm are correct, if I've read the timetable correctly.

Sorry, failed to notice this was over diesel weekend not the Members & Shareholders weekend, hence the confusion.

Lets try again: Over the weekend of 13th/14th October, will there be plans of the proposed Bridgnorth development available to view? if so, where and when?

Thanks. Wink

Yes there will be plans to view, and the Architect, Project Manager and other steering group members, available to consult and explain.
This will all be in a marquee on the car park (near the bar) probably around 11-4.

The share issue display at Bridgnorth will be only that of the station redevelopment plans - displays about other intended beneficiaries of the share issue will be elsewhere.

Just to clarify matters, the meeting in the boiler shop on the 6th is for staff only (both volunteer and paid). The sessions on Members and Shareholders weekend (13th and 14th Oct) are open; these will be in a marquee, and will be held during the day.

Please come along, look, listen and discuss!

Thanks for clearing up the facts.

Shares in Severn Valley Railway have gone on sale in a bid to provide investment in the 150-year-old line.

General manager Nick Ralls said shareholders would get discounts and a say in the running of the attraction.

The 16-mile heritage line follows the River Severn from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, attracting about 200,000 visitors a year.

It is hoped the move will raise £3m towards project such as a new heritage and engineering training academy.

Severn Valley Railway also aims to refurbish the railway infrastructure and restore Bridgnorth station "to its Victorian glory".

The shares cost £1 each, with a minimum investment of £100.

Mr Ralls said: "The demands of operating a 150-year-old railway are considerable.

"We are committed to ensuring the infrastructure is properly maintained, that rolling stock is of a high standard and that visitors have the kind of facilities they expect."

Readers might or might not like to know there's an article in HR that outlines the plans for BH in fuller detail than the proles have seen so far. Based on the posts upthread I'm pretty certain that hassell_a and others will be disappointed with the modern looks of the artist's impressions.

Haven't seen HR yet - what does it portray?

Please note, in any case, that nothing in cast in stone, and the open meeting this Saturday at 5pm in the Boilershop is for Bridgnorth staff (volunteers and paid) to give their views and ideas to feed into the proposed designs.

Severn Valley Railway shares sale off to a strong start

Delighted Severn Valley Railway bosses were this afternoon celebrating the early success of its shares sell-off as they raised £130,000 in the first few hours of trading.

Railway chiefs said they had been inundated by interest in the shares which went on sale at 9am today. Bosses at the 16-mile line, which runs between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, say the shares could bring in a whopping £3 million.

David Mee, SVR visitor services manager, said: “We have seen a tremendous amount of interest and we’ve been sending out a lot of information about the offer.

“A lot of people have also been requesting information from us and today we have received in excess of £130,000.

“The formal launch event is being held October 13 and 14, where visitors can join members and current shareholders to discuss the plans in more detail.”

The attraction is offering the chance to buy shares at a minimum investment of £100.

Shareholders will be given discounts and a say in the running of the railway.

They will also receive complimentary tickets and travel privileges, and exclusive incentives, depending on the number of shares bought.

The heritage line hopes the sale of the £1 shares will fund the building of a new visitor centre, station gateway and spectator gallery.

The money will also go towards creating a training academy.

Further ideas to spend the projected £3 million include restoring the Hagley Hall locomotive – which has not worked for more than 23 years – and carrying out further maintenance to the line and its infrastructure to preserve it for decades to come. The plans will also mark the 150th anniversary of the line.

John Hurst-Knight, Shropshire councillor for Bridgnorth West and Tasley, said: “The Severn Valley Railway brings in a lot of tourists to Bridgnorth, especially during holiday periods and weekends, and the town depends on that.

“If we lost that tourist attraction it would be very bad for the town.

“I know we at Shirehall are very keen to do whatever we can to help out the Severn Valley Railway.”

The railway carries about 250,000 passengers a year.
