“On This Day” (years ago) Jan 29th. 2009, 2010 and 2012

No SVR photos today, or “Sheds”, but for me still worth seeing. Tug 60009 at barnt Green, 70006 at Bromsgrove and 47749 at Lye.

Barnt Green was an unusual place for me to go, but one of the trains seen was the Westerleigh tanks hauled by 60009 in 2009. Then in 2010 70006 at Bromsgrove with the empty hoppers from Rugeley and finally 47749 at the rear of a ballast train at Lye. Two of those trains no longer run and the third was a one off working. All very boring now in comparison with so little freight to see.

Mostly units in the gallery photos at Barnt Green but a couple of Sheds also seen, the Tug being the most interesting loco though.

The following year in 2010 and down the Lickey in the Bromsgrove area the photos make it seem so busy, unless my dates are wrong, but I’ve chosen the 70 instead of the same Tug again or the Sheds.

Finally, one of the 47s seen at Lye, I’ll save the other for the post next year but you can have a peek in the gallery and see the other loco.
