Photos and Video, 1450, 63395 and 7714, Kidderminster 20/09/18

The forecast was for rain, most of the day – but supposedly heavier in the afternoon. As I had not yet seen 63395 I thought I should make the effort to see it. It was booked to leave Kidderminster at 10.45 so no rush to get over there after walking KC. The rain was falling all the time I was filming, from under an umbrella, and I was glad to be on the train back home.

Photos and Video, 40145 and 40106, Kidderminster 02/08/18

40145 was used to haul 40106 from Bury to the SVR. I filmed them arriving at Kidderminster, then 40145 headed back north later in the day and is seen first at Stourbridge Junction, then soon after at Old Hill. Also seen are 7802 and 43106, plus a couple of LM units 172333 and 153365, oh – and a pigeon which you can’t miss in the video! One does fly in front of the Manor and I cropped the frame from the video so that it can be seen just to the left of the tender in the photo.

Photos and Video, 66150 t&t 66056, Smethwick Galton Bridge 18/07/18

Lots of old updates to catch up with. 6M47 Toton – Wolverhampton, seems to run at a more predictable time than the trains from Wolverhampton. A DMU passed by as I was filming, but only blocked view of wagons, so no great loss.

After working a Kidderminster to Paignton trip, the train returned as 5Z61 ecs from Kidderminster – Carnforth. Fortunately a clear shot at the station with nothing due to run downhill.

A sprinkling of snow made a change for the videos and photos today. I wasn’t able to get there until lunchtime but at least it was a drier day than the previous week.
