Sharpo’s World Transport Photos

Severn Valley Railway 60s Transport Day - Feb 16th 2002


These photos were from the first proper day out with a Pentax Optio 330 digital camera, way back in 2002. The quality is not as good as the more recent photos, but I feel they are worth adding to the Gallery.

The day was very dull & misty, a good test for the camera! One thing I noticed was that the “red” colours were not quite right, but a bit of tweaking when editing the photos has made the colours look much better.

The day starts at Kidderminster, moving on to Bewdley and finally to Bridgnorth where the photo of 60009 in the yard was in very dull conditions, at about 15.50 on a February day - so not surprising!!

Locos seen in action:-
GWR 0-6-0PT no. 5764
GWR 0-6-0PT no. 7714
SR 4-6-2 no. 34027 “Taw Valley”
LMS 4-6-0 no. 45110
LMS 2-6-0 no. 46443
Class 50 no. 50031 “Hood”

Quite a good mix of rail & road subjects made this an interesting day out at a very quiet time of the year.
