Update 951. Video of 37611 & 37602 on 6M56 at Rowley Regis, 06/10/14

It’s Monday, 6M56 runs today, where shall I go? After much thought I decided on Rowley Regis. The train was running a few minutes early and appeared to be running immediately after the stopper, but it was booked to follow a later train, even though it ran through Stourbridge before it. Anyway, I believe it must’ve stopped in Stourbridge loop to let the DMU pass. A couple of DMUs passed through Rowley during the short time I waited, so I filmed them as well.

Update 950. Videos of the Severn Valley Railway Diesel Gala, day 1, 02/10/14

I travelled by main line train to Kidderminster to see the first departure from the SVR station to Bridgnorth. I think all the worthwhile videos have now been edited and uploaded, so I will list them so that you can pick any that you wish to view.

I also attended on the second day, but only travelled as far as Bewdley, so there will be some different views there. As yet, the videos have not been edited.
