And this afternoon
Dropped in to Bridgnorth this morning.
1501, 34027 and 7802 were the yard. Someone has taken the opportunity to get plenty of coal on board each of them
This smoke box was round the back of the shed. Any idea what it’s from?
75069 with 10:30 to Kidderminster. Her wheels and motion were cleaned while she waited.
Finally, a shot of 75069 crossing Oldbury viaduct
Judging by the wing plates, maybe Dunrobin?
I'm in agreement.
Had a nice visit to the railway yesterday, interesting to see the developments at Bridgnorth. Travelled behind 7714 on 7 mark 1's which was a lively run! SVR website says it is on load 8 today (teaks?) while 1501 and 2857 are on rakes of 7, surely should be the other way round?
Set L is the LMS set, which are a bit smaller and lighter than a Mk1, so 8 is roughly equivalent to 7 Mk1s (I can't remember the exact conversion off the top of my head).
Set N is the teak set - according to the website 7714 will be on a 6-coach teak set Wednesday and Thursday this week.
It's on Set L today which is the North set at the moment but working off Bewdley later in the week.
75069 at Sandy Lane yesterday with the 2:30 Bridgnorth departure.
75069 now in use Wednesday to Friday on the Bridgnorth set as 1501 has failed.
SVRlive says 34027
Taw Valley today.
Be nice to see the two (Maybe even three one day with 75079!) BR (SR) Black Std 4 4-6-0s together at some point. I wonder if it will happen?
I don't think 75078 has never ventured off the KWVR, except to Shipley Triangle for turning during filming of "Yanks"... And that was a rarity in itself, as with USA 5820, neither were Main Line registered!
It visited the ELR many years ago.
I didn't know that! Thank You for the info.
January 1991, from looking at photos on Flickr.
A few shots from Sunday's trains with the ever reliable 7714 and newly outshopped 75069 on services...
75069 leaving Bewdley on Saturday....
Can anyone advise please what is now in the Engine House after the shunt?
I think RH&DR No. 7 is in with 686, 600, 4566, 5764, 48773 and 7819. Which of 45110, 46443, 47383, 7325 and 80079 have joined them, and where are the others now housed?
Definitely not 7325 or 45110, they are in the carriage shed at Kidderminster. I believe I saw a photo of 47383 being shunted back into the Engine House earlier today, but that could've been it going out (and sure enough I can't find said photo now...)
Hope this helps.
