This June and July, a range of Pioneer services on the Severn Valley Railway will operate between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster with a range of diesel locomotives.
On Fridays, The Pioneer runs three times a day from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and return, a total of 96 miles behind your favourite locomotive!
On Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, The Pioneer runs from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, Bridgnorth to Bewdley, Bewdley to Bridgnorth, Bridgnorth to Kidderminster, Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and Bridgnorth to Kidderminster – nearly 88 miles in total behind a locomotive.
The locomotive roster for The Pioneer services is as follows:
- June 6th, Class 42 D821
- June 11th, Class 50
- June 13th, Class 50
- June 18th, Class 17 D8568 & Class 14 D9551
- June 20th, Class 52 D1015
- July 11th, Class 52 D1015 & Class 52 D1062
The best advice is to start your day at Kidderminster, but if you do wish to start from Bridgnorth, you can do this, but you would miss the first and last trips of the day.
Tickets are valid all day, so you can ride as little or as much as you want behind your favourite diesel locomotive.
Ticket prices for The Pioneer are £50 for a reserved table for two, £100 for a private compartment for up to 4 people and £150 for up to six people.
