SVR 28th November

We wanted some lunch at Highley today, so no KC with us, probably a good job as our 12.15 train from Bewdley was delayed. Not sure exactly what the problem was, something to do with signalling problems I believe, but we had to wait for the Bridgnorth train to reach Bewdley before we could leave.

46443 was on our train, 7812 on the train from Bridgnorth. After lunch at the Engine House, 5764 took us back to Bewdley.

D8188 was at Bewdley when we started our journey, but at Arley on our return, at least it wasn’t performing “thunderbird” duties!

Also, 6024 had been lit up, likely to leave early next week

Update 234. 31465 works 1Q12 Eastleigh to Derby at Dorridge

The timings for the train indicated that it would stop here for about an hour, so I decided on a shot from the platform as it passed by on the loop. As it approached I realised it was still on the main, but approaching very slowly. The going away shot explains the reason for slowing – a local DMU, seen in the distance, had been crossing the down line.
