Just had a very quick look. I like the addition of an 11.30 from Kidder to Highley in timetable A.

Also pleased to see Classic Vehicle day is back.

Which considering the explanation must be the DMU during the steam heat period (IIRC no diesels are currently fitted with a steam heat boiler and we have not ETH fitted sets to use with the class 50s). This is a very good idea as the A timetable is very basic and visitors can't do much on it.

Is the Diner now just for diners and so not on the timetable?

Correction for spelling in article for Autumn Steam Gala:- "wiith"

I heard a rumour that that was the case, but I would wait for something official.

Not sure where to send them but a few corrections:

The SVR Twitter address is @svrofficialsite, not @svrofficial

2013 is a(n) exciting year

The steam enthusiasts’ event of the year wiith a great line-up (picked up above)

A great three-day event for ‘steam buffs’ at the start of [the] season.

Panda alert - On dining services wheelchairs may be stored in the Guards Van. I'd have an apostrophe

The timetable shows no services operating on the 1st and 2nd August. I assume it should be Table B.

7 days' Santa trains, as opposed to 8 in 2012.

The Gala Preview Day referred to in the Special Events page of the website, which will take place on Thursday 19th September and for which details follow, appears from the brochure to be standard timetable service

Hampton Loade (Paddock Railway)

Live steam model railway operates at weekends.

Shouldn't this only be Sundays and Bank Holidays? I think that's the only days that they run except at the gala?

My guess would be a standard service but with the guest engines running the service

Thanks for all the comments. Two of the typos were spotted as soon as the document arrived at Bewdley, but you have, between you all, found more. Well done! Clare's asked me to say thank you.

Seven is the norm though, isn't it? Three weekends and Christmas Eve. This year's a bit different because the way it's worked out four weekends are shoehorned into December pre-Christmas.

As there are a number of trains operating I'll leave you to discuss whether to place the apostrophe before or after the s.

But if there are several trains but only one dining service, then it refers to just that train, so Guard's Van?
