60103 Flying Scotsman at the Severn Valley Railway, September 2016

It’s all over now, Flying Scotsman has headed up north and was filmed going through Old Hill this morning with its support coach on the way to the East Lancs. Railway. There was really only one chance of a chimney first shot of the loco most days at the SVR, unless you could hang around for the evening departure from Bridgnorth – which I wasn’t able to do. So I have put all my Scotsman videos in a playlist, you can watch them all or just pick one or two from the list.

It starts with the loco passing Small Heath on the way to Tyseley for an event. Next through Langley Green on the way to Kidderminster and the SVR. I saw it on 4 days at the Valley, one of which was EXTREMELY wet as the loco passed through Bewdley. Couldn’t avoid getting water on the lens, but did an almost identical shot another day. Also worth a mention is the set of 9 teak coaches, which is apparently a first in preservation. Final clip shows it steaming up the Dark Side at Old Hill with support coach.
