Photos and Videos, 5 diesels, Kidderminster 23/12/19

Another post for the above date, this time showing each of the diesels seen running. I had seen there was an ecs working to Bridgnorth so made sure I was there to see that, always good to see a class 37.

Photos, 3 steam & 5 diesel, Kidderminster 23/12/19

21 photos added to my gallery, too many to show all of them in a blog post.

They were filmed in the following order – 13201, 37688, 43106, 50049, 75069, 40106, 34027 and 33108, also the Coalyard Miniature Railway. I will add another post tomorrow with the link to the 2 videos and include a photo of each loco seen. Not enough time to get it all done today.

Photos and Video, 6960, 43106, 37688 and 40106, Kidderminster 28/12/19

This is the last day of service trains from Kidderminster SVR until April due to engineering work on Falling Sands viaduct. During the next 3 months when trains are booked to run it will just be between Bewdley and Bridgnorth. Three trains were in service, the diesel service being top and tailed with 40106 providing steam heat. The new main line station is nearer to completion than the last time I saw it but I’m not sure when it is due to open.

Locos are 6960, 43106, 37688 and 40106, also the new Kidderminster station but still under construction.

Photos, 46100 Royal Scot, Bridgnorth and Eardington, 13/11/19

I was driving near the Railway in Bridgnorth and noticed the signal for a train from the Bewdley direction. Thinking this might be my lucky day I parked the car and walked up to see what it might be – made it just in time, heard a train approaching, and it was Royal Scot. I filmed it arriving, then not many minutes later it departed again. Having some spare time I drove to Eardington bank in the hope of catching it on the return run…..

It was having some test runs following a recent overhaul. Only sorted the photos so far, video to follow later.

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

Photos and Video, 2857, 7714, 1501 and 6990 Kidderminster 09/12/18 part 4

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.
