Just watching it on diagrams, first departure 11 late - but pleased to see it doesn't run on the main but on the up/down goods so a better view of it at Small Heath station. Got the return journey wrong, it did go back on the UDG, it was a different train on the main.

I cannot see that this has been mentioned elsewhere. In the latest issue of The Railway Magazine there is an extensive article about Tyseley's aspirations to become a new TOC in their own right.
If successful, Vintage Trains are hoping to have regular timetable slots from Birmingham to heritage attractions and destinations, including the "Shakespeare Express" and regular evening slots for steam-hauled dining trains to Kidderminster and then over SVR metals to Bridgnorth.
These new regular paths would be incorporated into the next timetable revision, apparently in 2021.

Extract from the Vintage Trains web site[published 20 February 2019].


    + First railtour programme from Britain’s newest Train Operating Company
    + Over 30 railtours in 2019 line-up with new named train, the Chester Venturer
    + Restored Clun Castle makes main line debut and spearheads railtour programme
    + Partnership with Riviera Trains – flexible seating to match customer demand
    + Shakespeare Express returns
    + Bespoke dining trains from Birmingham Moor Street

This forum post is a snapshot extract from an external web site and is not necessarily updated to reflect change. Always refer back to and check the original site to confirm details are still correct.

Read the comprehensive press release for more detail.

Note: In the PR I could not find the SVR mentioned as a destination.
