Bewdley Station Gala Day - Saturday 21st July 2007 at The Severn Valley Railway (1000 till 1600)

The 21st July is a special day for Bewdley Station, included, this year for the first time, within the SVR's main timetable of events, the day is designed to be a celebration about the Towns station and its place within the local community. We would like to see as many local people attend the event as possible and take part in activities that are not normally available to visitors during a normal running day at the Railway.

We will have lots of attractions for all ages throughout the day and a full timetable of trains will continue arriving and departing the station at regular intervals between Kidderminster & Bewdley. Unfortunately the rest of the Railway is unreachable due to storm damage and services north of Bewdley are suspended.

Attractions on the day include:- Steam Engine cab visits on the famous express Great Western Railway 4930 'Hagley Hall' Locomotive. A Diesel Locomotive will be on hand for cab visits. Colouring competitions for the kids. Vintage Diesel train will be operating. Visits to our Signal Box with a guide to explain how it all works. Miniature live traction engines. A Vintage Bus Service operating a Shuttle service from the SVR Station, into the Town Centre, whilst also advertising local shops. Vintage Vehicles on display at the station. Model Rail display. A Pictorial history of the station and Railway line. A Special Menu will be served up within our station refreshment rooms.The Environment Agency will be providing a display on how the flood defences work at Bewdley and the scale of the work undertaken. Bewdley Fire Engine. As well as Network Rail, Bewdley Development Trust, Bewdley Museum, Civic Society, Friends of the Red Arrows and the Environment Agency along with other local groups being on hand throughout the day.

We look forward to seeing you at our event, and we really appreciate any support you can offer at this very difficult time.

All attractions are subject to availability and there will be NO car parking at the station during the event, we would encourage all our visitors to park their car at Kidderminster and travel to us by train. Car Parking charges may apply.

And how might they have done that?

Their priority is "houses", and was the reason they didn't erect the barriers in Worcester.

Cricket ground and racecourse are "flood plain" so not protected as such.

Yes, but we are talking about the same mentality of people that buy houses next to steam railwayd, then complain about the smoke, the noise, and the fact they have trains running past the end of their garden, blocking out the light!
