Video – Kidderminster 06/06/18. 1501, 66763, 34027, 33108 and 73136 (and a crow)

After uploading a few mobile phone photos during my visit yesterday, here is the video. It probably was my last chance to see the 66 during this visit to the Railway, I chose this day as the 33 and 73 were also double-heading a service train. Hope you like the “trainspotting crow”, at least I think it’s a crow? Taw Valley did rather bowl my diesel shot though! But it could’ve been worse.

Video – SVR Goods Gala Kidderminster-1. 03/06/18. 7714, 33108, 73136, 7802, 66763 and 34027

Another marathon video, filmed from the footbridge, just 66763 on the freight in this video. 2857 will be seen in the second part, along with 66763 again, but that won’t finish uploading until late tonight. It’s hard work on the arms filming those long sequences on the footbridge, camcorder at the ready waiting for a whistle and arms held high!

Video – SVR Goods Gala part 2, 02/06/18. 34027, 7802, 2857, 66763, 33108 and 1501

The other half of the videos from the day, continuing the filming at Highley before returning to Arley on the train hauled by 33108. An enjoyable few hours out and good to see a goods train or two and some shunting at Highley. I am uploading the first video from Sunday, filmed at Kidderminster – looks like 38 minutes or so over the two videos.

Video – 66763, 50033 and 33108 at Kidderminster, 31/0518. Plus 68s.

Just as I arrived 68011 was heading back to Stourbridge with ecs. That was going to be another video, but later on 68009 got in on the act with 33108 so the 68s were included as well, making it a rather long video!

66763 had run from Doncaster to Tyseley with 3 wagons, then collected 50033 and headed for the SVR as 6Z33. After some shunting the final shot is of 68009 racing back towards Stourbridge with the sanders on!!

Video – 66147 Old Hill, 30/05/18. Also 172218.

Due to engineering work south of Worcester, Round Oak trains couldn’t run through Norton Junction and the plan was to send them via the Lickey and Bescot. We won’t mention delays, but I don’t think all went to plan. Anyway, it gave me one train to see – 6V05 from Round Oak to Margam, which ran south to Worcester, then headed back north through Stourbridge and on up to Bescot, then Walsall and down the Lickey.

Video – Transport Museum, Wythall. 28/05/18

I know nothing about buses/coaches and didn’t make any notes of numbers or registrations, but took some video and have listed all registration numbers that I can see when playing it back. Also seen are some of the battery vehicles in the museum. Certainly plenty to see, but filming obviously not easy inside the buildings. I’m sure enthusiasts will recognise many more of the vehicles inside the building which are not showing in my number list. No doubt there are many more vehicles in the collection which do not appear in my video.
Video and number list below:-
