Photos and Video, 7714 and 75069, “Safari Park curve” 23/02/19

A brief outing to see 75069, got there just in time to see 7714 heading for Bewdley and it wasn’t long before the steam from 75069 could be seen in the distance. Having a double chimney the exhaust is probably not as loud as other locos on this climb but it was certainly running well

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.

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.

Photos and Video, 2857, 7714, 1501, 6990, 34027 and 43106, Kidderminster 09/12/18 part 1

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!
