    Looks like 1062 is heading to the WSR for the mixed traffic weekend. loco shall be leaving on wednesday by rail, being towed to the WSR by a 66 but heard a rumor yesterday that it might be 1015 Western Champion towing 1062 as they are both going to the event.

    would have been a wonderful sight though 2 maroon 1000s on the mainline nearly 40 years since the last time ?

    There appears to be an update to the timings from Nigel Hopkins.

    Kidd. SVR dep 13:15
    Kidderminster 13:23-13:30
    Worcester Yard 13:54-15:31

    The timings afterwards run within a gnat's whisker of the original times.

    ....don't shoot the messenger. <BJ>

    D1062 seen departing the SVR at Kidderminster on it's way to the WSR gala. I intended to film it again after the booked 1:30 stop in Worcester yard. However I later found out that they left Worcester 75 minutes early - so missed it.
    Not much thrash, but a record of the event anyway.
    Enjoy.

    Whilst waiting for D1062 I filmed a few 66's, just in the hope they may have an hydraulic attached!

    I managed to get out and film the return to the SVR today.
    I seem to have a "calming" effect on mainline moves, everything was being brought to a stop outside Cheltenham, including this move!
    Well it made all the photters happy :)

    Anyway video is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_024X1U5n0&fmt=18
