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.

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.

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……

Photos and Video, 68012, 66177, 66152 and 66768, also some units, Tyseley 04/12/18

After a visit to Kings Norton earlier in the day, when a test train and HST power car move had been cancelled, I wanted to try and see a few more trains so went to Tyseley. It was a rather dull afternoon but in the hour or so that I was there a 68 and 3 Class 66s were filmed along with a variety of units. The video came out reasonably well but the photos aren’t too good due to the poor light. Final photo was at Moor Street.
