Photos, 60019 plus some units, Smethwick GB 09/01/20

I keep taking photos of units but never check the numbers so don’t know if they are “cops” or not. Probably seen all the local ones even if I haven’t actually filmed them. The photos are in the order seen, as I was filling in time until the 60 appeared.

Numbers are 350232, 170506, 170510, 350114, 350410, 170503 and 60019

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.
