This sounds like it could be a good event for those into this scene. Certainly possible to make a weekend out of it if you take in the music element.

Severn Valley Railway 1960s Weekend 2015?
Dear Classic Vehicle owners,

This year, the Severn Valley Railway is celebrating it's 50th anniversary
so I write to you to inform you that we shall be holding a special 1960s theme weekend. This event will be
taking place on the 15th & 16th August 2015.

I am seeking classic vehicles from the era to join in with our displays at
the following stations:

At Kidderminster:
We are looking to display salloon cars on our station fortcourt and micro
cars under our station canopy.

At Bewdley:
HGVs and commercial vehicles will be welcome to take part in a display at
Bewdley station, where we are hoping to create an Industrial themed

At Highley:
We have 3 replica Italian Job Minis on display in our Engine House visitor
centre. So, if you own a Mini, this may be the venue for you...?
Other verities of classic cars will be welcome here in our station yard

At Bridgnorth, we are looking to have a gathering of Morris Minors as this
fits the space we have rather well.

All display areas will be on a first come - first serve basis on the day.

Owners wishing to take part will receive a special discount rate for train
travel on the day they attend for themselves and for one passenger. This
will be Child Member rate (£8 for a freedom of the line train ticket -

Those wishing to take part in this event (either one day or both!), please
contact me so we can get you booked in to our main displays. If possible,
please reply by email and if you can, supply a photo (Jpeg) of your
