Severn Valley Railway has raised £500,000 since it launched its share offer two weeks ago.

The Midlands railway is aiming to raise £3 million to restore Bridgnorth station to its original Victorian glory by selling shares for one pound each.

Shareholders will have a say in the running of the railway.

Severn Valley say they're delighted by the response to the scheme so far.
