Minor typo on http://www.svr.co.uk/SEItem.aspx?a=134
"Wizard Weeks: Monday 30th July - Sunday 2nd September
...and even pose for photos on Platform 9 and 2/4."
Shouldn't that be 9?

http://www.svr.co.uk/NewsItem.aspx?a=835
"July 21st - Morris Dances performing on the concourse during the day."
'Morris Dancers performing...' or 'Morris Dances performed...'.

Meanwhile, "Couse" is still there on https://svrshop.co.uk/ and the 'Deal of the day' that "runs for 24 hours" hasn't changed for well over a month, so I take it the on line shop has now joined the Engine House virtual tour, featuring "Alverley" with its "idilic" surroundings, as a permanent embarrassment to the SVR?

Ah, but would that not constitute plagiarism? He asked, tongue firmly in cheek.

Platform 9 2/4 on display at Kidderminster.
https://www.facebook.com/DiscoverTelford/posts/836879249983269

And at Highley.

Either the mistake has been repeated by someone who doesn't know better, or Madderlake's guess is correct, and the term "Platform 9" really has been copyrighted.

SVR social media reported that 45110 went back in the Engine House on 28 September.

https://twitter.com/svrofficialsite/status/1045737512403111942

Web site still has 45110 under locomotives in storage at Kidderminster.

Thanks Pete. Should it go back on the "Locomotives in The Engine House" page?

I'll try to find what's happening, and amend if appropriate.

A couple more typos on https://www.svr.co.uk/EngineHouse_Attractions.aspx

"Experience the age of royalty on rails abord King George VI's royal carriage"

"Jump aboard ['a' or 'the'] Travelling Post Office"

I know it's probably not worth mentioning again, but despite having a full time commercial manager on the staff at Comberton Place, we've still got "Couse every season..." on https://svrshop.co.uk/ and the "Deals of the Day run for 24 hours" hasn't changed in eight months.

I know it's too late now, but for the next print run of the dining leaflet, could we change "onboard" to the more correct "on board".
https://www.svr.co.uk/pdf/Brochures/SVR%20Dining%202019.pdf

"Running selected dates..." sounds a little too American to me as well. "Running on selected dates..." would better suit the avant-garde font and the image of traditional English afternoon tea.
