Metropolitan no.1 on test runs at the SVR, 30/11/12

There was a news item in a railway publication about the loco having test runs on preserved railways, one of which could be the SVR. Later on, there was a mention that the loco had been unloaded at Bridgnorth. Then my lucky day arrived, I was driving down the Bewdley bypass & noticed the loco stopped just before the bridge. Quickly parking the car, I hoped to get a shot as it crossed the bridge. After taking a test shot, the loco set off towards Kidderminster, my only option was the lane towards Foley Park, and walking quickly down there I managed some good photos of it in action. The loco has since had test runs in London, other photos have appeared in the press, so here are mine.
