Photos, SVR Autumn Gala, Safari Park curve 23/09/18 part-2

The weather was a bit more pleasant when these photos were taken but trains were about 35 minutes behind schedule. The brolly had been up and down a few times but fortunately it wasn’t raining when any of the trains passed, although it was cold and I went home earlier than planned. Locos seen 7802, 6233, 1450 and 63395. I’ll add another post when the video is online.

Photos, SVR Autumn Gala, Safari Park curve 23/09/18 part-1

The video is still uploading but I have cropped a couple of images from each of the clips. Locos seen on this page are 43106, 2857, 46100 and 70000. There was some blue sky and bright sunshine when the Scot and Brit were due, but instead of being 40 minutes behind 2857 it turned out to be 65 minutes before the Scot appeared and the sun was hidden behind black clouds. As you can see those photos are rather yuk! Locos seen are 43106, 2857, 46100 and 70000.
