Old Videos. 26/10/16 and diverted trains at Old Hill.

The Lickey was closed and Cross Country trains and the occasional freight were sent via the Dark Side. These trains were filmed on a couple of visits to the station during the day. Numbers I could read are:- 172221, 170638, 170522, 66183, 66057, 172332, 43366, 43285, 170518, 170101, DR98909, DR98959, 43321, 43357, not forgetting some Voyagers.

Old Video, 18/10/15. 60163, 2857 & 46100, also 5 Sheds.

I haven’t time to add photos to the galleries at the moment so this is just a posting for the video.

My day started at Old Hill with 66113 on 6P04 Kidderminster – Crewe Basford Hall. Only just got to the station in time to see it. Then off to Arley to film 60163 & 2857. After that, near the old Rifle Range Halt to see 60163 & 46100. Then at Kidderminster, 4 x 66s in a convoy, 66114, 66169, 66051 & 66238 on 0N44 Bescot – Margam. Royal Scot can be heard running round in the background and soon after is seen departing with a train to Bridgnorth. Final clip shows the diesel depot with a Class 50 in the background.

Making the most of decent weather and some trains to see, another visit to Kidderminster. Filling in time with the unit, but always hoping the train from Bewdley would appear in the background as I was filming, but not this time.

What a lovely surprise, I walked to the station expecting to see the NMT on the test train, but it was top & tail 37s, just like the previous month. Didn’t get bowled either. 1Q15 Derby – Swansea.
