Gaslamp

The Severn Valley Railway can be justly proud of the wealth of Gas Lamps that light the site at Kidderminster.

Gas Lighting was installed by the SVR on the main platform and concourse shortly after their construction. The Friends have continued this tradition with Gas lighting on our bay platform and the station forecourt.

The lamp in this photo is thought to be the only active 'Full Harp' lamp post in preservation.

Examples of the 'Half Harp' and a full size 'Yard Lamp', as well as some bracketed examples are active every night to give that special period look.
