A group based at Kidderminster Town Station with a goal to add those "Oh-so-important" features of a typical GWRGreat Western Railway station. The group was started in November 1993 by a number of SVRSevern Valley Railway volunteers, following a day out on the Bluebell Railway. Noting that the ‘Friends of Kingscote’ had done substantial work to improve Kingscote station at no cost to the Bluebell, they quickly formed the Friends of Kidderminster Town with the idea of doing the same for the SVRSevern Valley Railway.
Projects complete by the Friends include:-
Much of the GWRGreat Western Railway style spearpoint fencing around the concourse,
The Port Cochere style canopy at front of the building
The ornamental roof crestings. (The patterns for these cast roof crestings were produced at the SVRSevern Valley Railway's pattern shop by copying fragments of originals recovered from Ross-on-Wye).
