Update 333. Royal Saloon 798 into The Engine House, Severn Valley Railway. 28/04/10

A “big shunt” at The Engine House today. The Royal Saloon, built at Wolverton, 1941, was taken to Highley by D3022 and would to take the place of the TPO. This meant 3 locos had to be moved first, Pannier 7714, 8F 48773 & Midland Compound 1000. The locos were all shunted onto the “main line” to allow removal of the TPO, its place being taken by the Saloon. Plenty of photos were taken, including my first shots of the Compound in daylight.
