THE beautiful surroundings of the heritage Severn Valley Railway (SVR) will play host to modern rail royalty and buses during this jam-packed weekend.

Visitors will be able to experience a journey along the Severn Valley as never before when UK Railtours' The Silver King arrives on Saturday (September 6).

With more than 3000hp under the bonnet, power-operated doors, air conditioning and Wi-Fi, the Chiltern Railways silver 'Mainline' set features silver mark three carriages hauled by a Class 67 diesel electric locomotive, all in distinctive silver livery. At the other end of the train, a matching Driving Van Trailer will complete the formation operating in push-pull mode.

Following The Silver King's visit, the Railway will next play host to its On The Buses event at Bewdley on Sunday (September 7).
