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, 3 steam & 5 diesel, Kidderminster 23/12/19

21 photos added to my gallery, too many to show all of them in a blog post.

They were filmed in the following order – 13201, 37688, 43106, 50049, 75069, 40106, 34027 and 33108, also the Coalyard Miniature Railway. I will add another post tomorrow with the link to the 2 videos and include a photo of each loco seen. Not enough time to get it all done today.

Photos and Video, 6960, 43106, 37688 and 40106, Kidderminster 28/12/19

This is the last day of service trains from Kidderminster SVR until April due to engineering work on Falling Sands viaduct. During the next 3 months when trains are booked to run it will just be between Bewdley and Bridgnorth. Three trains were in service, the diesel service being top and tailed with 40106 providing steam heat. The new main line station is nearer to completion than the last time I saw it but I’m not sure when it is due to open.
