    A siding is being laid, with provision for further to be added later on as part of our partnership with Network rail.

    Not at this moment. The sets are being reorganised to put buffet cars back in. Ill bw able to tell which one is working off Bridgnorth as I am shunting it tonight. The GW set is not in use as it needs all the Enchanted Express gubbins removing.

    Thanks, it is a shame the GWR rake won't be in use. I do like the pre-BR carriages on the SVR! Just saw a video on the SVR unofficial facebook group, 7714 worked set C to Bridgnorth today ECS today.

    No doubt, but they weren't evident for the days between Christmas and the new Year. No direct links from the calendar pages ( the obvious place to look).

    The calendar pages link to pages for the day/service such as this https://svr.co.uk/event/festive-trains/ and the link to the timetable is on that page.
    I will say I do find the current public website unclear at times.

    Thanks for that link. I spent some time trying to find it, and failing - until I thought of NatPres and found the TTs at a glance!
    I can see that they've aimed the site at people who see it as a visit (like a historic house or theme park) rather than a journey, which is fine.
    But all I wanted was the time of the first train from my chosen starting station!
    A link to every open day to the appropriate TT is all that's needed to do that.
    That would by-pass having decide, for instance, whether my planned round trip was an Event or an Experience and finding it was neither.

    For those visiting betweeen Christmas and the winter steam up David Postle at the Kidderminster Railway Museum has asked me to share the following events that are on . I suspect Cafe is open as well for refreshments and the museum itself is always worth a look around

    December 27th daily to January 2nd, January 6th and January 7th - book fair, selling over a thousand rare and out of print railway books, most in mint condition, and extremely hard to find. In addition there are thousands of other railway books for sale, all at half the labelled price, plus new books from publishers Lightmoor Press and Kidderminster Railway Museum. Opening hours 10am to 5.00pm

    January 6th - photograph fair, with thousands of photographs for sale from 20 tables of dealers. Kidderminster Railway Museum's own photograph archive will also be available. Opening hours 10am to 4.30pm.

    Since you mention the Museum, I had the honour this morning of being introduced to Kevin, the Museum cat. 'Kevin' is a girl, by the way... :confused:

    Very fussy. Regularly comes and sits on your lap. Not complaining.

    Why am I getting the feeling that Kevin has adopted the railway? :)
