Our aim is to reopen the Sharpness branch line to passengers as a heritage railway tourist attraction, rebuilding some of the key structures that once adorned this historical joint GWR & LMS Severn & Wye Railway.
We have established an engineering facility based in the old Engine Shed by the docks in order to restore heritage locomotives, rolling stock and other suitable items from a by-gone era and to serve as an initial base for the Vale of Berkeley Railway. Eventually we hope to restore the original Sharpness station site, and start up a Heritage Railway operation towards Berkeley.
Currently the Engine Shed is open for Volunteers on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.
Visitors are welcome during these times to look round the shed, meet our volunteers and find out more about the project. In order to find us please take a look at the Contact Us page as we’re not sign posted.
For details on joining the railway please see our membership page.
