Santa Heralds
Get Christmas off to a magical start as you travel in the company of Father Christmas on our Santa Herald steam train to Highley.

Join the steam train at Kidderminster Station for your journey with Father Christmas to Highley. Father Christmas will visit every child on the train, handing out gifts to each fare-paying child and posing for photographs. Donít forget to bring your camera!

You have guaranteed seats on your journey to and from Highley. Please note, you do not get off the train at any intermediate stations on the journey.

Santa Heralds operate on: December 19th, 20th, 21st & 22nd.

Additional Santa Herald!

Following the cancellation of the Santa Steam Specials on Sunday 10th December, our dedicated volunteers have rallied together to put on additional Santa Herald trains on Monday 18th December 2017.

Good on SVR for arranging this Santa Herald though I can't understand how they can sell tickets to new passengers when surely all the tickets should go to those who bought a ticket for Sunday.

All the people who had booked for last Sunday have been [or in some cases will be soon] contacted to see what they want to do. One of the options IS to transfer to a Herald, but for a fair number of them a mid-week date isn't an option, and there will be seats on the Herald available to new bookings.

I understand that I just thought those not able to make 10th December would have got first preference.
