Severn Valley Railway   The Severn Valley Railway has been running as a heritage railway for more than 50 years and is the 6th longest standard gauge heritage line in the UK. It mostly follows the scenic course of the River Severn from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and has a number of railway related places to visit, including a nice museum at Kidderminster Town station. The Friends of Kidderminster Town Station own and maintain a 6-ton Mechanical Horse in GWR livery but unfortunately it's not on general public display. However, it sometimes makes an appearance at special events such as vehicle gatherings when The Mechanical Horse Club also puts on a display. Website
