After an overhaul that has taken eight years 4149 ventured out on to the railway yesterday for a couple of test runs. Back in 2011 its body was removed so that we could assess the condition of the underframe, it had been withdrawn from service in 2004/5 due to its poor underframe. With the body on and all the underframe equipment in place it was not too easy to fully assess its condition. It proved to be just as bad as we had feared having suffered heavy corrosion in many places. Over the following 8 years the overhaul went in fits and starts as other jobs had to take priority. So new solebars , new headstocks, much replacement steel in the bogies, new hornguides, overhauled body, new moquette, new roof canvas refurbished compartments and a new coat or two of paint we arrive at test day. I gather that it went very well with 4149 being added to the service train for the last trip. All photos by John Faulkner ... See MoreSee Less

On this day in history – 23 May 1892, after the conversion of 171 route miles of broad gauge railway in South Devon and Cornwall to narrow (standard) gauge over the weekend of 21 and 22 May, the service restarted on the standard gauge. This photograph shows the first standard gauge train leaving Plymouth Millbay on 23 May. The cost of the change from broad to standard gauge was in the region of £800,000 (around £100 million at 2019 values). ... See MoreSee Less

The return of 'Ratbag'!

After several months of careful planning and discussions, we're pleased to announce a temporary return to Severn Valley metals of former resident No. 6960 Raveningham Hall!

Nicknamed 'Ratbag', the loco left the Railway in 1996 after a residency of 19 years, having covered 69,392 miles.

Helping out our friends at the West Somerset Railway, the 'loco swap' is a first for the Railway, seeing No. 7802 Bradley Manor moving down south from May 22nd until early October 2019 - this enables the WSR to have a ‘Blue’ route loco, whilst we have the heavier ‘Red’ route loco.

This swap has been made possible by the close working relationships established between the Erlestoke Manor Fund, West Somerset Railway, Locomotive Services Limited and Severn Valley Railway.

Look out for Raveningham Hall in service throughout the coming months and at our Autumn Steam Gala!
