    FB_IMG_1505067011678.jpg above is a copy of the official velo Birmingham map. The points marked "o" or "u" are the only points you can cross the route. I'm willing to help folks find a route in / out if you p.m. me but be patient as I work night shifts.

    AJ's cafe at Kiddy is good: good value for money, nice stuff and great range of stuff. Just round the corner from the station. Usually a lot quicker than the Valley suite.

    It's been a while but I always found Morrisons in Kiddy was rather useful for breakfast and stocking up with a few provisions for later in the day too.

    There is a wide choice of cask ales available at both the King & Castle and the Railwayman's Arms - including some specially brewed for the SVR by Bewdley Brewery.

    Mine also. Will the tickets follow?
    Going back to an earlier question which I can't yet find an answer for, what coaches will make up the overnight trains? I can see it is local 1 and 3 but still can't work out what they are comprised of.
    When will we know the way locos are facing?

    A Facebook reply fromn the SVR says there will be local sets of 4 and 2, if that helps at all.

    Thanks, Patrick. I assume locals 1 and 3 are of 4 and local 2 is of 2.
