“On This Day” (years ago) Feb 9th. 2003, 2008, 2010 & 2013

Four different years for this date. In 2003 I was at a KWVR gala, photos not in gallery – but they weren’t very good! 80002 is seen double-heading with 45212. In 2008 4566 is seen at Hay Bridge with a “Reopening Train” after the floods. Then in 2010 at Worcester 47749 is seen on a working from Long Marston. Finally in 2013 at Old Hill 37218 & 37609 on a Pathfinders tour. 

I think this was my last shot of the day, 80002 and 45212 heading for Oxenhope in 2003.

In 2008 SVR trains were running again after the floods! 4566 with headboard Severn Valley “Reopening Train”.

In 2010 47749 was on a Long Marston – Llanwern working, pity the sun wasn’t a bit higher in the sky!

Finally, in 2013 a Pathfinder Bristol – Carlisle tour is seen up the Dark Side at Old Hill.
