Photos and video, 66763 Stourbridge Junction, 25/07/17

An interesting working from Doncaster to the Severn Valley Railway, where the loco worked several charters – as can be seen in one of my other posts.

Photos and videos, 66737 66154 68030 68018 60056 Northfield, 27/07/17

I’ve already uploaded a video of the Class 60 which I went to see, but in the space of 4 minutes there were 3 other freights here. On the way from Birmingham I wanted to film 150105 so got off at Kings Norton, then back on the train to Northfield. I think it was that little detour that lost me the plot! I was thinking a southbound freight was due first but 66737 surprised me by running early, as did the Bridgwater a few minutes later – you can tell I messed it up by being on the wrong platform!

Photos and videos, 68009 and 70813 Stourbridge, 27/07/17

As I waited for 70813, 153354 and 170635 approached – so I filmed them as they make a change from the Class 172 units. Then the empty Chiltern stock from Kidderminster arrived, would I get bowled?
