Steam & diesel today, 16/04/10

Headed for Acocks Green to see 5043 with the stock for a Solihull to Slough excursion, not checked the photos yet – but it was ceratinly going well approaching the station.

Then to Kings Norton to see 56311 & 56312 moving some tank wagons from Long Marston, not looked at those photos (I’m slipping!)

SVR 15th April

Lunch at Bewdley, again! 42968 had been detached from the rear of a train hauled from Bridgnorth by 43106. As we arrived it was being moved onto Rock siding, next stop Llangollen, where it is due to attend a gala.

When 43106 returned from Kidderminster, it crossed with 6695, but then we headed home so didn’t see the third train running.

Nothing much in the way of photos, but I will find something to upload – there won’t be a link from here though.
