Update 682. Photos of GWR 0-6-0PT 3650 at the Severn Valley Railway, 2012

3650 spent a couple of months at the SVR to assist when there was a shortage of working steam locos. Normally it is based at Didcot Railway Centre. I have linked most of the photos of 3650 so that they appear in a single album. The final photos were taken during the SVR Autumn Steam Gala. Once that was over, 3650 was moved to the Bluebell Railway.

New version of “Lightbox” in my Sharpo’s World gallery

You may have used the previous version for viewing the larger size images. This time I have set it to automatically start a slideshow if you view a large image, but just click the “||” button to stop the slideshow (bottom right below image)

It also works with my Android smart phone, once the slideshow starts I can decrease the size of the image so that it fits on the screen. I obviously don’t know how it works on other smart phones though.

The slideshow is set to a maximum of 400 images, which I’m sure is more than enough for anybody!!

I hope you find it useful, any problems with it – let me know.

Update 681. Day 3 of the Severn Valley Railway Autumn Steam Gala, 23/09/12

I started from Bewdley, travelling to Highley behind 30120 for some photos. From there, to Arley for some sandwiches, then to Bewdley & back to Highley to see the Coal Tank. Then to Arley again to wait for the Coal Tank on its working to Kidderminster. Once again, it was a good job I had an umbrella, as it was wet most of the day.

All 103 photos or edited version of 26 photos

Today was the only day I saw the Coal Tank, so here it is
