SVR 14th March

After the gala last weekend, it’s back to the usual – a walk alongside the river at Arley & sarnies at the station. Not forgetting the timetable is different now, and of course the calendar has not been updated as yet!

The Manors were seen running, also 4566. Seemed a bit tame after “Gresley” up through Old Hill this morning, but at least the steamers on the Valley are more frequent than at Old Hill.

“Gresley” conquers Old Hill bank

No banker, and no clear run through Cradley, but it went well through Old Hill with 11 on.

Hoping my photos turn out well, they’ll be sorted later.

They can all be found here:-


Sorry about including the DMUs but that explains the reason for the slow climb by Gresley, checked by signals caused by the one driver using the lineside ‘phone.
