I printed off the public timetable and the inside pages are upside down.

I see on the website that a VIP breakfast at the Engine House entitles you to access the viewing balcony. Does this mean the balcony is not available otherwise?

I asked about this -- Wording now amended…it’s only part of the balcony.

Looking at the Spring Gala Timetable is the 12:45 from Kidderminster the Severn Valley Limited?

Yes, from a look at the WTT available now on SVR Live, it would appear that the Limited is combined with another set.

Can't see it, not for us mere mortals?

Remind me, is the SGG WTT usually distributed, for free?

No, but when somebody says it's on SVRlive, you look, don't you!

I have a Shareholder's ticket voucher (valid to 1 Jan 2018). Is this valid for the Steam Gala? The SVR webpage seems to suggest it is not, unless I have misread it, but the Shareholder Travel Benefits section on the reverse of the ticket voucher letter says these vouchers are valid for all trains shown in the public timetable with the exception of Santa trains, Christmas Carol trains and Ghost trains. I still plan to come to the gals but would appreciate clarification on this.

Looking at working timetable it says GW2 is 6 coaches does that mean they haven't fixed the buffet car and it runs without buffet car?

1856 was in the process of being reassembled at the end of last week. Yet to see if it will be in the set by Thursday.

Yes it is. If it's a Shareholder voucher, just get it swapped at the Booking office for a rover ticket. If it's shareholder ticket, just date it and use it as you would on a normal day.
