Thanks to everyone who supported the 'Severn Valley Adventurer' anniversary railtour organised by CrossCountry and Modern Railways on Tuesday 27 September.

The event marked two anniversaries this year: 40 years of HSTs on CrossCountry’s North East to South West route and 60 years of publication of Modern Railways magazine. It included the naming of CrossCountry power car No 43366 as HST 40 and the naming of GB Railfreight's No 66799 as Modern Railways - Diamond Jubilee.

Proceeds from the trip will go to the Railway Benefit Fund, and a total will be announced in due course.

The celebration of the 60th anniversary of Modern Railways will conclude later in the year with the two-day Modern Railways EXPO show at Milton Keynes on 22-23 November. For more details see
