Steam Locomotives visiting the SVR for galas

From SVR Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page gives details of steam locomotives that have visited the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society for galas and other special events.

Locomotives are listed by their most recent BRBritish Rail or British Railways number, followed by the number carried at the time of the visit (if different) shown in square brackets, for example 60103 Flying Scotsman [LNERLondon & North Eastern Railway 4472]. ( * indicates the loco was also on hire to the Severn Valley Railway at the time)

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