SEVERN Valley Railway is branching out into the family games market, and has launched its own customised versions of Monopoly and Top Trumps.

The classic games have been adapted to feature iconic locations and locomotives associated with the leading heritage railway, which runs for 16 miles through Shropshire and Worcestershire.

Featured locations include the railway’s six stations, along with structures such as Victoria Bridge and Falling Sands Viaduct. 

Meanwhile, the specially-commissioned SVR Top Trumps game features 30 steam locomotives with close associations to the railway. Each one comes with a fact file and competitive statistics.

Helen Smith, the SVR’s managing director, said: “We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to create these very special games.” 

“We’re expecting a huge demand as these are completely unique products and will only be available through our online shop at or at our on-site shops.

The SVR’s Monopoly and Top Trumps are available to pre-order now, and will be delivered in the Autumn.
