I was not at Kidderminster in the morning, but saw 34053 pass through Arley & then drove to Bridgnorth to try & photograph the loco with a Hurricane & Spitfire flying overhead. Did I succeed – what do you think? … Continue reading

A little outing to see the Northern Belle. Decided to try Witton, as at Aston there is more chance of another train blocking the view. It was running late & I missed the train I had planned to travel back … Continue reading

Update 814. 2 videos of Lambton 0-6-2T no. 29 at Churnet Valley Railway, 21/08/13

Both videos have come out reasonably well. I did notice a bit of blurring as one of the darker coaches passed by at Consall – cameras don’t like dull colours in shady conditions. Perhaps I shouldn’t be too critical. Link … Continue reading

Following on from that last update, some more photos from Arley taken the following day. Will I ever catch up and get all the older photos uploaded? I doubt it, don’t mention a Barrow Hill open day, or a DRS … Continue reading

Update 811. 1501, 5164, 7812, 34053 & D821 at Arley, 25/05/13

Some forgotten photos from May. These were edited and ready to upload, but something more important must have distracted me. KC makes an appearance, as do the ducklings at Arley station. Link to photos 1501 waits the arrival of 5164
