From 26 December

to 6 January we’ve got steam trains at Bridgnorth:

2018 plan your day 26 dec to 6 jan

Then from 7 January until February half-term, our engineering teams take over the tracks and get work done that can’t be tackled when trains are running. Our pub will be open as usual, but our refreshment room and gift shop will be on reduced weekend hours.

 

Our new toilets

are nearly ready…

The general manager said on 30 November that SVR is very close to taking possession of the Refreshment Room and Toilet Building at Bridgnorth from Iris Construction who have been working through a small snagging list before they hand us the keys. And next week will see the removal from site of all contractors’ cabins and remaining materials.

“Once we are able to freely access the building, the priority will be to open the toilets up to the public as soon as possible to replace the existing facilities. There will then follow a period of setting up the interior with items such as tables, chairs, curtains, fire irons and other essential items in order to make ready for public use. The kitchen staff will also require training on the new equipment and plant.”

The intention is to fully open the Refreshment Room at half term reopening, but it is anticipated that there will be a “soft” opening before then in order to shakedown the equipment and ensure its smooth operation when launched.
