SEVERN VAL­LEY RAIL­WAY CLAS­SIC VE­HI­CLE DAY

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Events Previews -

KIDDERMINSTER-BRIDGNORTH, 24 JULY

It’s not so much one clas­sic show as four for the price of one – all linked by steam trains chug­ging through 16 miles of coun­try­side from Worces­ter­shire to Shrop­shire.

The Severn Val­ley Rail­way says it has had more than 140 en­tries for its day of clas­sics tak­ing over its sta­tions. At the Kidderminster, ter­mi­nus you’ll be able to see a 1927 Austin and 1926 Clu­ley and a dis­play of Long­bridge mem­o­ra­bilia, the En­gine Vis­i­tor House mu­seum at High­ley will have a 1964 Daimler, a 1946 Rover 10 and a 1953 Jaguar XK120 on show, and the fi­nal call­ing point at Bridgnorth will have its sta­tion car park ded­i­cated to Bri­tish clas­sics.

Mar­ket­ing man­ager Clare Gibbard reck­ons the day’s four-wheeled en­trants will steal the show, even with the steam-hauled trains com­pet­ing for at­ten­tion.

‘There is a real em­pha­sis on the stal­warts of Bri­tish mo­tor­ing this year, with a va­ri­ety of stun­ning ex­am­ples of some of the UK’s most fa­mous mar­ques, many hail­ing from right here in the Mid­lands, on dis­play at sta­tions all along the line.’
