use the LM car park as it is not locked.
Short stay may be cheaper than ours?

Off-peak and weekend it is, 2.50 vs 3. Though peak (before 10am ?) it is 4.50 and thus the SVR car park is actually cheaper


Does this explain why, on some weekdays, the car park appears busier than our trains?

Update http://www.krm.org.uk/

Saturday 15th October
Film Show - Keith Bullock and his 16mm BTF films

The start of our film show season now that the evenings are getting darker and the garden does not demand so much attention. Keith is coming to show us more of his extensive library of 16mm films, most of which were made by the British Transport Film Unit in the 1940s/50s and 60s. These a not the well-known films that are readily available on DVD, but some of the more rare films, some of which were made for training purposes, or as internal communication. There will be films of railways of course, but there will be films of other forms of transport such as buses and shipping. The films enable us to wallow in nostalgia for an evening because they are as much a record of social history of a bygone era as they are of the transport of the day. The film show will start at 7.30pm and continue until approximately 10.00pm to 10.15pm.
Saturday 22nd October to Sunday 30th October
Massive Book Sale

We have about 2,500 books which are surplus to our requirements because we already hold copies in our library stock. The vast majority are of railway subjects, but we also have some military and naval books. We have hundreds of railway VHS tapes, bundles of magazines of all years and many different titles (come and fill your gaps), a number of prints, paintings and maps, and many examples of railway paperwork. Instead of just storing all this material and taking up valuable space, we are keen to translate all this into money for our new extension building (more about which will appear shortly on this website), and there will be many many bargains to be had. Why not come and spend some time just browsing in case there is anything of interest to you. You can always refresh yourself in the tea rooms for another look around - or to carry your books! We are aiming to reduce the number of duplicate books we hold in order to give us more space to display the collections we have in store. Your help is therefore needed - your visit will not be wasted I am sure. The opening times are 10.30am to 5pm on each of the days. Admission is free - another good reason to come and spend some time with us!

From the web site:

Railway Photograph Fair,
Saturday January 7th 2017.

The first of our railway photograph fairs for 2017 where you can come and browse through thousands and thousands of photographs to find more for your own collection. As well as the museum's own collection being made available for inspection (over 200,000 images), there will be a number of dealers with huge stocks of photographs which you can buy with your Christmas money! The dealers booked in so far include Jeremy Sutor, Mike Thorp, Rod Blencowe, Roger Carpenter, Mike Cremin, Friends of Hampton Loade station, Duncan Chandler, Barrie Geens and the HMRS. The doors will open at 10.00am and the show is due to close at 4.30pm. Refreshments are available all day and there is ample parking in the Severn Valley Railway car park. Admission is free.

It really is a rather good photo fair. I find it sad only one of the dealers has colour views. Really looking forward to seeing what I can add to my collection.
