The Severn Valley Railway line is offering the chance to buy shares in the company in a bid to raise £3million.

It needs the money for a "major investment" that will happen over the next 50 years.

The attraction, that runs between Shropshire and Worcestershire, is looking to improve its Bridgnorth station, add a visitor centre, maintain its tracks and train young people in the up-keep of a heritage railway.

It carries about 250,000 passengers a year and from the 1st October a minimum investment of £100 will be available for people to buy.
