Update 1036. Videos at Severn Valley Railway Spring Gala 22/03/15 part 9

I’ve started on the videos for the third day of the gala. This playlist is a collection of long shots filmed just north of Arley from the other side of the river. It’s a bit different from the normal videos with the trains hidden behind trees part of the time, away from stations and in a peaceful part of the valley. Locos are:- 1501, L92, 34053, 4270, 1450, 2857, 90733 & 1054.

Update 1029. Video of 66013 & 66100 Stourbridge, 09/01/15

I do wish I could keep my blog postings up to date, another one from January that wasn’t added! There was a problem of where to stand as the freight was due & a southbound DMU was likely to be in the way. As you can see the approaching shot was limited by the DMU and then the southbound train appeared before I could choose a better position, that is why I had to move away from the platform edge while still filming.

Update 1027. A ride behind 92214, 04/01/15

Winter probably isn’t the best time to try this sort of shot, especially when the wind is blowing the wrong way, but it was worth a try as 92214 was a visiting loco. First clip is approaching & departing from Northwood Halt, then second clip is leaving Bewdley & the climb to the tunnel. Final few seconds added at the end show D7029 & D5410 in the yard at Kidderminster. Managed to get Sutton, the baby elephant, in the shot as the train passed the Safari Park.
