Photo, 34027 also Shark brake van, Kidderminster 01/06/18

Called in at Kidder today and had a play with mobile phone to take a photo or two. 34027 was on on one of the three service trains and the hoppers attached to the Shark arrived yesterday behind 66763.

Photos not brilliant but at least I can add them when away from home.

They weren’t looking too good, so I uploaded to pc at home and replaced them with edited versions. I didn’t expect them to be good, lots of swirling smoke and the sun wrong side for the Taw Valley shot. At least I can get a shot with my mobile.


Video – 66763, 50033 and 33108 at Kidderminster, 31/0518. Plus 68s.

Just as I arrived 68011 was heading back to Stourbridge with ecs. That was going to be another video, but later on 68009 got in on the act with 33108 so the 68s were included as well, making it a rather long video!

66763 had run from Doncaster to Tyseley with 3 wagons, then collected 50033 and headed for the SVR as 6Z33. After some shunting the final shot is of 68009 racing back towards Stourbridge with the sanders on!!
