December 2019 - A very busy month for all involved with the seeting up and running trains for the Samta season.  A different format from previous years, but stillwith the opportunity to disembark at Bewdley on the return journey if you wish.  Take time out to look around the sales coaches on site, take in the decorated station, warm by the real fire in the waiting room and perhaps walk into the town to savour the atmosphere, have lunch in one of the meany establishments and perhaps purchase those last minute presents.

The station building received the usual festive decorations.
