The Severn Valley Railway is a heritage railway in Shropshire and Worcestershire, England. The 16-mile (26 km) line runs along the Severn Valley from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster, following the course of the River Severn for much of its route. Train services are hauled predominantly by steam locomotives; however diesel traction is also sometimes used.

The railway is one of the most popular heritage railways in the country. It hosts numerous special events throughout the year, including both steam and diesel galas.

Due to extensive damage to infrastructure during bad storms and heavy rainfall in June 2007, the railway was closed between Bewdley and Bridgnorth, and services did not resume until 21 March 2008.
