Traditionally held each spring, this event began as an annual 'Members Day'. The first Members Day advertised in SVR News 'forthcoming events' was on 1 April 1995, featuring an increased train service with visits and displays behind the scenes for SVR members.[1] In 2005 the invitation was extended to SVR shareholders with a second day being added to become the Members & Shareholders Weekend. Kidderminster Railway Museum holds complementary activities.


Replacement by 'Open House Weekend'

During the event the 'behind the scenes' exhibits such as the Bridgnorth Loco Works were open to the general public as well as members and shareholders. In 2016 the event was renamed the 'Open House Weekend' to reflect this, with additional attractions including model railways at Kidderminster Railway Museum and the Engine House.

Peep Behind the Scenes

From 2010-2017 a second event, Peep Behind the Scenes, also allowed visitors a chance to see some areas of the railway that are not normally open to the public.
