Photographer's Note

Old steam trains are operated by the Severn Valley Railway Society between Bridgnorth in Shropshire and Kidderminster in Worcestershire along a 16 mile track. It is operated as a tourist attraction with the stations and platforms having a 1940s atmosphere with many memorabilia. These children were on a school outing in an old carriage of a steam train going in the opposite direction from the one we were in. The original line was completed in 1862 but was virtually closed in 1963 when the country experienced large scale railway closures. In 1965 the Severn Valley Railway Society formed and raised money to buy their first 5 miles of track. In 1970 a section opened for passenger services and by 1984 the 16 miles was in operation, as it is today.
The picture was taken on a wet and windy day in July 2008. The beautiful county of Shropshire is in central England midway between Birmingham and the Welsh Border.
