Steam Locomotives visiting the SVR for galas

From SVR Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page gives details of locomotives that have visited the SVRSevern Valley Railway for galas and other special events. (* indicates the loco was also on hire to the Severn Valley Railway at the time)

During the 1970s SVRSevern Valley Railway ‘Enthusiast Days’ (the forerunner of of the modern gala events) were run using only the SVRSevern Valley Railway’s own locomotives, many of which were appearing in steam for the first time. In the 1980s, visiting locomotives began to appear. SVRSevern Valley Railway News did not always link them to specific galas or enthusiast events, merely observing that they visited for a short time.
