The Severn Valley Railway (SVR) is asking for your opinion in regards to reopening their heritage line.
Since the UK lockdown was put in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Late March, the Severn Valley Railway, like every other preserved railway, has been closed to the public.
Two months later in late May, with a peak in positive case, many shops are reopening, with the important questions of when should heritage railways reopen?
At the last bank holiday weekend, the Nene Valley Railway had their refreshment kiosk at Overton Station open, with social distancing measure in place. Although a small step, vital income could be earned to help support the railway as a whole.
With reopening slowly becoming more likely, the SVR is asking for your opinion. There are many issues to consider, from social distancing to cleaning of rolling stock.
To help the SVR in this process, you can fill out their survey here.
In the meantime, you can help support the Severn Valley Railway in a number of ways, from purchasing items from their online shop to adopting steam and diesel engines based on the line.
