Kidderminster is easily reached by rail from Birmingham. The mainline railway station is also the starting point for the Severn Valley Railway. You can see all kinds of historic steam and diesel locomotives here. You can take a trip on the railway on one of the many trips and even take the Santa Specials at Christmas.
From 24 May 2004 The Chiltern Rail service direct to London Marylebone has been improved. Mon to Fri there are now 5 trains direct to London between 06.10am and 08.14am and 5 trains returning in the evening. On Sats there are 5 trains between 05.38am and 09.10am, the return trains are a little earlier. When these trains were introduced in Sep 2002 they were the 1st direct trains to London for over 50 years.
The National Rail Central Trains sell a combination ticket for your trip to Kidderminster and the Severn Valley steam train. We picked up a combo ticket from Worcester.
