FOUR-wheeled transport is set to steal the show at Severn Valley Railway, when the popular Classic Vehicle Day returns next weekend.

Sharing the limelight on Sunday, July 30, the SVR's heritage locomotives will be taking passengers along the Railway's 16-mile span to enjoy the array of classic and iconic vehicles of all shapes and sizes, on display at stations along the line.

More than 150 classics will be showcased during the day, with more than 100 being pre-1970 and nearly 40 of those dating from before 1950.

Some of the oldest cars on display are expected to be a 1924 Rolls Royce at Arley and a rare 1926 Cluley on Kidderminster's concourse.

Among the stars of the show at Kidderminster station will be a selection of Austins, a 1930 Standard Teignmouth and a 1959 Heinkel bubble car, while tempting passers-by on the station forecourt will be a gleaming line-up including a rare 1934 Hillman Aero Minx and an example of the American-looking Vauxhall Cresta PA from 1959.

Visitors should look out for an immaculate 1966 VW Type 2 TI Spaceway caravanette, a 1973 Jensen Interceptor III and a 1936 Triumph Drophead Coupé among the vehicles on show at Bewdley.

Clare Gibbard, marketing and communications manager, said: "For one day each year, our steam locomotives have to hand over the spotlight to a fantastic range of classic and iconic vehicles.

"This year we have a truly eclectic mix, spanning the decades from the 1920s right through until the 2000s and there are sure to be some familiar favourites, evoking memories of yesteryear, as well as some truly aspirational and much-loved examples of classics we would all love to own."
