The railway is one of the most popular heritage railways in the country. It hosts numerous special events throughout the year, including both steam and diesel galas, Thomas the Tank Engine events, and Santa Specials. In October 2004, the line hosted the Railcar 50 event, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of diesel multiple units by British Railways. Their diesel multiple unit is used to run a Saturday Evening Fish and Chip Special from May to August, leaving Kidderminster at around 7pm and returning at 10pm after one hour in Bridgnorth.
