About Catch Me Who Can Bridgnorth Art Trail

This art trail around Bridgenorth celebrates Trevithick’s famous, Catch-Me-Who-Can locomotive, the first train in the world to carry fare-paying passengers. Catch Me Who Can was the fourth and last steam railway locomotive created by the inventor and mining engineer, and was first tested in the town in July 1808. Over 200 years later, Bridgenorth is celebrating this achievement in this special art trail around the town, featuring a series of twelve cast aluminium sculptures of the train. The sculptures are decorated by local artists and have become a semi-permanent feature around the town.

Originally The organisers intend to keep the sculptures on display for 5 years from July 2018, so you still have time to see them! The trail is 2 miles long (3.2km) and is easily walkable in a couple of hours.
