Peep Behind the Scenes
‘Peep Behind the Scenes’ was an annual event held between 2010 and 2017.
An additional charge (£5.00) was applied on the day for a wristband allowing access to areas normally closed to the public. These included the Kidderminster Carriage Repair Works, the Diesel Depot, Kidderminster Carriage Shed, Kidderminster signal box, Bewdley North signal box, Bewdley Yard including the Carriage & Wagon Department and No 4150, Bridgnorth MPD and Bridgnorth signal box.
The 4150 Fund 2010-2016Charitable Trust was taking over as organisers from the 2017 event.

New attractions in the Trust's first ‘Peep Behind the Scenes’ were access to the footplates of LMR 600 Gordon and 80079 in the Engine House and rides on Wickham Trolley 748 at Highley. Proceeds from the sale of ‘Peep’ wristbands came to well over £2,500, and there were plenty more donations made directly to individual restoration projects.
The event has not been held since 2017.
