The Severn Valley and The Gloucester & Warwickshire Railways
Tue 31st October @ 14:00 - 16:30
A Hitchin & Welwyn Garden City presentation by Richard Morris.
The Severn Valley Railway was one of the first heritage railways to rise from the ashes of the wholesale closure of branch line railways in the 1960s and has developed into one of the country’s premier heritage railways. It was up and running 6 years or so before the line which now forms the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway was closed by BR! The current fortunes of both are really rather different – we take a look at developments of both railways and bring the story up-to-date.
Doors open 13:30.
