SVR 18th August

The bus from Stourbridge made good progress this morning, although a bunch of useless motorists that couldn’t even overtake a slow tractor did delay us by a minute or two, fortunately we reached Kidderminster station with about 2 minutes to spare before the departure of the 11.40. I could’ve played safe and stayed on the bus to Bewdley, but decided to go for the train – hauled by 7802, and caught it.

After lunch at Bewdley the train back to Kidderminster was hauled by 43106, 3802 was on the other train. Back at Stourbridge, the “Dodger” was missing (reason unknown) and a taxi was provided for passengers. Soon after arriving at the Junction the “Dodger” came up the branch from the Town and seemed to be working OK, the other unit was by the signal box, so maybe they had been shunting them around.
