The Severn Valley Railway Diesel Gala starts on Thursday and 50049 & 50044 arrived from Cardiff today. As I waited on the footbridge at Kidderminster, a steam loco could be heard in the distance – it was 828 on a photo charter. I knew it was running but wasn’t expecting to see it. Also seen was 66519 on 6G43 Croft to Brierley Hill grit stone train.
50031 can also be seen in the background
