SVR Archives

The SVR archives are held at The Engine House in an upstairs room shared with the catering stores, set up in 2009.

The archive room holds a vast collection of information dating back to the earliest days of the SVR’s preservation. It includes every copy of SVR News, every timetable and promotional booklet, plus many old SVR posters and timetables and a large collection of press cuttings from 1965 onwards.[1]

​The SVR Archive has an informal agreement with Kidderminster Railway Museum that any documents donated to either organisation relating to the SVR in the preservation era will go to Highley, while any relating to the railway pre-preservation, go to Kidderminster.
