New exhibitions at Severn Valley Railway this Easter

The group's collection of heritage locomotives will be in full steam from April 8 to April 23, taking visitors on a journey of adventure and back to the golden age of steam.

Passengers will be able to hop on and off to explore any of the railway's six historic, beautifully-restored stations en route or head to The Engine House Visitor Centre where children can enter a competition with prizes and the chance to win a family Freedom of the Line ticket.

Visitors will be able to see two new exhibitions. The Art of the Railway Poster tells the story of the big four railway companies looking for ways to promote train travel to the public, showcasing a range of original posters. Signs of the Times is a display of London Underground and Great Western Railway signs, courtesy of London Transport Museum and Kidderminster Railway Museum.

Visitors can also meet the engine that collided with a camel, learn about how the railway works and sort the mail in the travelling post office.

If full-size steam trains aren't enough, people can take a ride on the Coalyard Miniature Railway at Kidderminster or marvel at the Paddock Garden miniature railway at Hampton Loade. Staff and volunteers will also be preparing to welcome children's favourites Peppa Pig on May 6 and 7.
