List of stations

This page refers to stations and halts within the area occupied by the present day SVRSevern Valley Railway. For a list of all the stations and halts on the original Severn Valley Line, see the Pre-1963 map.

The majority of the stations on the present day SVRSevern Valley Railway survive from GWRGreat Western Railway days and retain most of their original appearance. The exception is the SVRSevern Valley Railway station at Kidderminster which opened in 1984 and was newly built on the site of the former south goods yard of the existing Kidderminster main line station. The SVRSevern Valley Railway station is officially named Kidderminster Town (in line with GWRGreat Western Railway custom of including “Town” in the name of the closer of two stations to a town, the SVRSevern Valley Railway station being around 50 yards closer to Kidderminster’s town centre than the main line station). However in everyday use on the SVRSevern Valley Railway, ‘Kidderminster’ would be taken to mean the SVRSevern Valley Railway’s station, and the same is true on this Wiki site unless otherwise stated.

Of the two active Halts, Northwood Halt features a replacement shelter, while Country Park Halt (which serves Alveley Country park) is entirely new, although located close to the original Alveley Halt.
