Today I just visited Kidderminster but once again filmed all the three steam locos running. Also included are a couple of clips of the Coalyard Miniature Railway.

The SVR had been closed for 6 weeks for winter engineering works and on this date train services resumed. It was only a brief visit but I had a ride from Kidderminster to Arley and back, filming each of the three locos. I was too busy talking when the DMU arrived at early so no video of that moving.

My journey back from the SVR was just in time to see this ecs working from Worcester to Tyseley. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but at least it was something other than the usual Class 172 units normally seen here. Unfortunately I didn’t see the number of the other Class 153 unit.

Video and photos, 57305 and 57312 on Northern Belle ecs, 14/02/17

An ecs move from Kidderminster to Preston. Running as 5Z38 with 57305 leading, it was booked into Rowley loop, this gave me a chance to see it at Old Hill and catch the next train to Langley Green to see it again.

Video and photos 68008, 68025 and 68001 Stourbridge, 12/02/17

The Friday morning ecs working was too early for me but the Sunday evening return run from Coventry was at a time I could manage, although it was in the dark. I chose Stourbridge for the video as the downhill runs at Old Hill are rather uneventful and not too good in the dark. A Chiltern ecs set arrived just before the Belle was due, this meant the view from platform 2  would be blocked, but as you see in the video it did set back into the yard in plenty of time.

Cropping images of a fast train from a video filmed in the dark doesn’t give great results, but here they are.

The two Class 68s bring a Northern Belle coach from Crewe to the Severn Valley Railway, running as 5Z80 and will work the ecs the following morning from Kidderminster to Victoria. That leaves the SVR about 4am so I won’t be at the station to see that!
