SVR 5th July

Arley area again. 7714 southbound, then 7802 northbound. At the station, 42968 n/b and 5764 s/b. 46443 arrived with diner, ran round, returning to Kidder.

A Spitfire was due overhead at around the time of the next trains, I saw 7714 arrive then concentrated on the sky. Managed some shots of the ‘plane, probably as the next s/b train arrived. Knowing it would return within minutes, I was looking skyward as the train departed & didn’t notice the loco which passed under the roadbridge as the Spitfire flew overhead. So much for paying attention, could only be 7812 or 4566?
