SVR 28th March

Around Arley, as usual, 5164 was on the train from Bridgnorth & due away from Arley at 11.38. Next train for Bridgnorth had 4566. The diner was running today behind 7802 & crossed with 7812 from Bridgnorth.

As it was rather chilly & some black clouds were looming ominously in the distance, we didn’t hang around to see 5164 return & headed home earlier than usual. Back to the car before it rained, but glad to be heading home as it bucketed down soon after.

Pathfinder Tours & 37401

Saw it pass through Barnt Green (heard it coming from miles away!) and was surprised only one loco on the train. Having seen many postings the previous evening about attempts to get 37406 ready (and failing) I was expecting to see a 67 somewhere in the formation. Will sort a photo or two later.
