SVR 17th July

As we parked the car, we heard the whistle as a loco moved away. It was not one of the usual whistles & I knew it was 34053. Once on the platform there was no sign of the loco, but a friend in the signalbox advised me it would be back in a few minutes, it was doing some gentle running backwards & forwards. Sure enough, it ran back into the platform and after a short while pulled gently out of the station again. My first ever photos of this loco moving!! 43106 is also seen on a service train & I believe the final photo shows the boiler from 2857 undergoing steam testing.
