Update 460. 45407 & 44871 on the Severn Valley Railway, 14/05/11

The locos are seen at Kidderminster as they cross onto the Severn Valley Railway. Also running today were D8059, 50031, 7812, 5164 & 46443 on Footplate Experience. There should only have been 1 diesel running, but with the shortage of available steam locos a 2nd diesel had to be used. One of the Black 5s should be working the Limited on Sunday.

In this shot, 45407 is being uncoupled & will couple to the rear of the support coaches before running to Bridgnorth. This helps to spread the load as they cross Victoria Bridge.
