“On This Day” (years ago) Jan 28th. 2006, 2011 and 2015

The SVR photo is from 2006 and shows 60009 Union of South Africa in the yard at Bridgnorth with casing at front open for access to smokebox door. In 2011 I photographed the last WSMR train from Wrexham to Marylebone, 67013 at Sandwell & Dudley. Then a video from 2015 showing 66177 down the Junction, yes, back in the days when I could get to Stourbridge in time to see a freight, too early for me now though.
7 photos at the SVR on this date in the gallery, 5764 seen from The Engine House and 8F, 42968 & A4 in the yard at Bridgnorth.

60009 Bridgnorth. 28/01/06

Thought I ought to make the effort to see the final run with 67013, not realising at the time that loco-hauled trains would soon be running up the Dark Side from Kidderminster

67013 Sandwell & Dudley. 28/01/11. The last WSMR train from Wrexham

Finally, a video from 2015 showing 66177 on a steel train to Round Oak, and looking at the way I finished the video the signal may have just been upgraded to a new LED version.
