Closed for the Winter

We are now closed for our winter break - this is our chance to get essential maintenance done on our railway ready for the 2017 season.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say "Hello" during 2016 - we hope to see you again in 2017.

And remember that we love to welcome new members. So if you have a 32mm / 16mm locomotive, or are thinking about getting one then get in touch.


The Paddock Railway is a model railway layout in the grounds of the Severn Valley Railway's Hampton Loade station and operates every Sunday when the SVR trains are in operation, every Bank Holiday Monday and other days when certain special events are taking place.

Operated by a voluntary group, it is an extensive 32mm scenic outdoor layout with three separate running circuits and facilities for both gas and coal fired locomotives

Visitors are able to watch from a terrace overloking the circuits and take advantage of an adjacent picnic area which is also right next to the main SVR line. There is no charge for spectators, although donations to help keep the layout running are always welcome.

If you have a 32mm / 16mm locomotive and would like to join us for a run then get in touch via the contact us page to confirm arrangements.
