Severn Valley Railway

Hogwarts express

Severn Valley Railway, Bewdley

The Severn Valley Railway (SVR) is a jewel in the crown of railway preservation. It's a standard-gauge line running steam trains between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth (16 miles/25.7km) following the River Severn. The Victoria Bridge is a highlight, a single span bridge high above the River Severn.

SVR has starred as Hogwarts Express in Harry Potter to name just one of its film appearances.
