STEAM trains, treasure hunts and activities for eagled-eyed visitors are all on offer at Severn Valley Railway this half-term.

The Railway’s collection of heritage steam locomotives will be steaming along, taking passengers for exciting trips along the line, between Saturday (May 28) and Sunday, June 5.

Children can pick up an I-spy sheet from station booking offices and spot the items as they travel along the line.

For those who would like an extra train trip, the Coalyard Miniature Railway, at Kidderminster station, will be open for rides between 2.30pm and 5pm from May 29 to June 5 – weather permitting.

There’s also treasure to be found at the Engine Visitor House at Highley, where children can take part in a treasure hunt, linked to the Railway’s newest exhibition, showcasing the work of famous railway artist Terence Cuneo.

Terence Cuneo – the Man and His Mouse, features paintings by the artist, plus footage of him at work. Youngsters can take on the challenge of spotting the mouse – a trademark of the artist, hidden in each of the paintings.

Clare Gibbard, marketing and communications manager, said: “We have got steam trains great and small as well as some really fun competitions and challenges for youngsters this half-term.

“Our Terence Cuneo exhibition is a fascinating insight into the life and works of this talented artist and adults and children alike will love trying to spot the mouse, which he always added into his paintings.”
