The Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust supports vital rolling stock, infrastructure and educational projects to protect and preserve the Railway so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Over ten years, the incredible support we’ve received from generous donors and grant makers has enabled a diverse range of crucial projects to happen. The SVR’s flagship locomotive, Hagley Hall has been overhauled, and is now back into steam; the Bridgnorth Locomotive Works roof and crane appeal is in progress; the majestic Falling Sands Viaduct restored; 14 heritage apprentices trained and much, much more.

Find out how you can Support Us to keep this wonderful railway running for the benefit of future generations.
