SVR 30th August

Steam locos seen around Arley were 4936, 7802, 7812 & 42968. D444 was on the diesel turn, but I heard it was replaced by 37906 for the second round trip, but the 37 failed after Bewdley on the outward trip. … Continue reading

Update 177. SVR 30th August, 7802, 7812, 42968 & D444 seen around Arley

A few more photos added to the current SVR album. It’s not easy getting “different” photos each weekend, going to the same station, but I try! At least it’s a “family” outing & KC gets her walk. No decent photo … Continue reading

Update 175. Warwick Parkway – 4 freights with 47727, 66153, 66590 & 66070, plus usual DMUs & just 3 shots of 34067 Tangmere on The Cathedrals Express

I went to Warwick Parkway to see 34067 Tangmere on The Cathedrals Express, all the photos are in my main Sharpo’s World site but I have included 3 here. A couple of hours later one of the Colas 47s was … Continue reading

Update 174. 34067 “Tangmere” on The Cathedrals Express to Stratford

Not many choices of where to see the train when travelling by rail to see it. Having been to Leamington for steam specials, I felt like a change. Checking train times I could get to Warwick Parkway about 10 minutes … Continue reading

Update 173. Ivatt 2-6-0 43106 “Flying Pig” back in action at Bridgnorth on the SVR.

Earlier this week, following a major overhaul, 43106 made a test run to Hampton Loade. Just as a change from “lunch at Bewdley”, we went to Bridgnorth for lunch. The loco was in steam in the yard & I managed … Continue reading

The counter goes over 1 million “photo views”

Yes, it’s taken 3½ years since the gallery was started in January 2006 for the counter to go over the million mark. Could probably have done it sooner if I’d plugged my photos more often in forums & e-groups, or … Continue reading

Update 172. 47501 & 47802 on 1Z47 Rail Blue Charters, Chesterfield to Paignton tour.

Rarely see DRS 47s so this was worth a trip to Bromsgrove. The freight working was a bonus, totally unexpected! I believe one of the 47s was failed at Exeter and the special returned behind a single 47, bet that … Continue reading

Update 171. More photos for the summer SVR gallery.

As usual, way behind with photos. Just recently though, I have been adding more photos to the “July – September” album. Nothing exceptional, just the usual scenes at Arley or Bewdley, but with the addition of the visitor – 4936 … Continue reading
