Photos, 46100 Royal Scot, Bridgnorth and Eardington, 13/11/19

I was driving near the Railway in Bridgnorth and noticed the signal for a train from the Bewdley direction. Thinking this might be my lucky day I parked the car and walked up to see what it might be – made it just in time, heard a train approaching, and it was Royal Scot. I filmed it arriving, then not many minutes later it departed again. Having some spare time I drove to Eardington bank in the hope of catching it on the return run…..

It was having some test runs following a recent overhaul. Only sorted the photos so far, video to follow later.

Video and photos, 33108, 43106, 2857 & 50044, Kidderminster 24/12/18

An hour at Kidderminster from 2.45 to 3.45 was long enough to see both Santa Sleigh Express trains on Christmas Eve. 33108 departed for Highley with 43106 on the rear at 2.45 then at 3.15 2857 arrived with 50044 on the rear. Not long after, the 50 headed back to the depot, just as the miniature Warship passed by. Finally as I headed back for my train home, 2857 was ready to propel the stock to the carriage shed and I just had time to film that before walking to “the other” station just as my train arrived.

This second post has a link to the video and 6 more photos of the locos seen. At this moment in time I won’t be adding photos of all the units as there were quite a lot of them, but they can be seen in the video.

Photos and Video, 2857, 7714, 1501 and 6990 Kidderminster 09/12/18 part 4

Final video and mostly of the Panniers. After the arrival of 2857 the Panniers have their bunkers topped up with coal then shunt round to couple up for the next departure. Fortunately 6990 wasn’t completely bowled but as in an earlier video I didn’t get a proper video of the Panniers departing.

Photos and Video, 34027, 7714 and 1501, Kidderminster 09/12/18 part 3 (and “Jean”)

Third video, featuring the locos as above and of course “Jean” on the Coalyard Miniature Railway. I could probably have combined the final footage into 1 video as there isn’t as much left as I thought, but this uploaded overnight – so here it is. Probably see more photos of the Panniers in the final video so just Taw Valley photos below.
