Time to bring you all up to date with progress being made on the Severn Valley Railway. Firstly, we'd like to bring you up to date on the progress being made on Arley station. This is being modeled by Paul Springthorpe. As you'll see, the attention to detail is staggering!

We appreciate that progress may be a lot slower than you, as a user, would like, however, we are making progress. Bailey and Jack are doing well on the sections they have been assigned. Hopefully we'll have a completed route in the not to distant future.
Thank you for you interest!
