Limited choice today. In 2008 4771 Green Arrow is seen departing from Consall, then 34053 entering Kidderminster in 2013. The only video I can find is 66304 on the Tesco, in the dark, at Old Hill.

Photo and Video, 6023, Kidderminster 22/02/18

I knew the loco was on the way from Didcot, but didn’t know when it was due to arrive. Apparently it had arrived earlier in the day, but I was fortunate to get a clear shot of it in the … Continue reading

Photo and Video, 37218 and 37069, Kidderminster 22/02/18

I wanted to call in at the SVR, hoping to see the blue King (which I did) and it was also convenient to see the Berkeley 6M56 to Crewe about 20 minutes later.

“On This Day” (years ago) Feb 21st. 2004, 2010 & 2015
