Extract from the SVR website [23 March 2018].

Evening Scenic Specials
With optional fish & chip supper.

Selected Saturday evenings throughout the summer.

Our Evening Scenic Special is operated by our heritage diesel railcar on selected Saturday evenings, and takes you on a leisurely journey to Bridgnorth and back.

Evening Scenic Specials depart Kidderminster at 7pm operating on: April 21, 28 and every Saturday from May 5 Sep 15 (excluding 19 May, 30 June & 7 July).

If you are feeling peckish, you might like to order a fish and chip supper when on the train (additional charge applies) to be enjoyed at Bridgnorth. Whilst on the train, you can also make use of the on-train bar facilities for a tipple on the move.

On arrival at Bridgnorth, you can wash it down with a glass (or two) of one of our exquisite ales available in The Railwayman's Arms, right on the platform.

The return train departs from Bridgnorth at 9.00pm, arriving at Kidderminster at 10.00pm. Bar facilities are available on this train, as are facilities for the less able.

Refer to the web page for information about DMU tickets.
Sample Adult ticket (bought on the day) = 14.00

Hi All,

I've just posted this in the DMU thread but have noticed I should have really posted it here.
What i want to know was which diesel will be in place of the DMU on this Saturdays Scenic Cruise and also is it possible to alight at Hampton Loade on the return from Bridgnorth.

Cheers

Rick

It is hoped that the three car unit will be available for traffic again from Friday 25th May, however the Scenic Evening Rail Cruises will continue to be loco hauled until such time as the five car is available once again.

A 50 I think, not sure which one. And yes, just make sure the guard knows you want to get off there.

As viewed on the latest diesel loco operating dates (updated 05 June 2018) the Evening Cruise may be steam hauled on Saturday 09 June?
