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.

Link to YouTube video or photos for this date in gallery.

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.

My first visit to the Severn Valley Railway this month. Arriving by train, I had to watch the clock as trains back home aren’t very frequent on a Sunday – but managed almost 4 hours with plenty to see and film. The first photos are included here along with the first video which runs for almost 19 minutes. There will be more to follow when editing and uploading are complete. Quite a contrast in photos, some in full sun, others in shade with white sky above – not easy to get good results!

The last “On This Day” (years ago) December 9th. 2006, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017

Track laying at Echills Wood Railway in 2006, 66706, 66766, 66767, 66768, 66769, 66770, 66771 and 66772 at Rowley Regis in 2014, 60015 at Stourbridge in 2015, Bowled 37611 and 37219 at Tyseley in 2016 and finally 80072 at Kidderminster in 2017.

That really is FINALLY! I keep running out of time creating the images and writing this page. If all the images were already on line it would be so easy to just link to them but in recent weeks I have had to search through many videos to find a frame to crop, then upload etc. At least I’ve kept this topic going for 11 months and not missed a day, and it has been interesting for me coming across forgotten memories. Time to start those winter projects……
