Velo Birmingham, filmed at Bewdley, 24/09/17 Part-1

I was at Bewdley for the Severn Valley Railway gala, but at the quiet times filmed the cyclists passing by. At first they were few and far between but later on it was a continuous procession and I must have seen well over a thousand, maybe more – but too many to count! There will be 5 videos in total, the first one being over 11 minutes long.

I was surprised how good the quality was, never having filmed this sort of event before, and cropping photos from the video also gives good results, as below:-

Photo and video, 60163 Tornado, Smethwick 16/09/17

Had to get up early to catch a train to Smethwick Galton Bridge to see Tornado on The Border Raider, 1Z63 Tame Bridge Parkway – Carlisle. It was worth it though!

The updates ground to a halt again!

Too many other things to do, gardening etc. and loads of videos to edit. Thought I’d cracked it a few weeks ago but getting the balance of hobby and “household tasks” isn’t easy.

The evenings are getting darker, wetter and colder, less watering of plants in the garden – maybe get the indoor “jobs” done now.

Photo and video, 66849 70810 70806, Stourbridge 24/07/17

The first evening of the diverted Bescot to Westbury due to Oxford closure, and three locos! I had been hoping to get some interesting wagons on these trains, but the three I saw were all light engines only.
