If you want the authentically mucky atmosphere (Lovely!) of a real Steam Locomotive Shed, there's Bridgnorth Station. However, if you prefer a clean, dry, easy-access exhibition, where you don't have to watch the kids like a hawk, then the Engine House is the place to go. Part of the Severn Valley Railway, this well-designed modern facility houses the 'Reserve Collection', including locomotives that have reached the end of their running 'MOT', as well as coaches, wagons and other artefacts. Locomotives not scheduled for overhaul in the short term - a lengthy and expensive process - are 'bulled-up' to perfection and displayed under cover. Volunteer guides are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very approachable. Excellent shop, restaurant and outside viewing gallery to watch the working trains go by, or just to enjoy the river scenery. A 'Freedom of the Line’ railway ticket includes admission, otherwise a pretty reasonable £5.50 (usual concessions)
