An hour at Kidderminster from 2.45 to 3.45 was long enough to see both Santa Sleigh Express trains on Christmas Eve. 33108 departed for Highley with 43106 on the rear at 2.45 then at 3.15 2857 arrived with 50044 on the rear. Not long after, the 50 headed back to the depot, just as the miniature Warship passed by. Finally as I headed back for my train home, 2857 was ready to propel the stock to the carriage shed and I just had time to film that before walking to “the other” station just as my train arrived.
