Another Sunday, this time on the SVR
The first Severn Valley Steam Gala of the year was held this weekend, Sunday turned out to be a fine day as Ivatt Class 4MT, 43106, also known as the flying pig, leaves Bewdley with a Kidderminster bound train. Built in the late 1940's/earl;y 1950s, 43106 was the last of its class to run on British Railways, being withdrawn on the 1st August 1968 just before the end of steam, going onto the SVR to spend more years in preservation than it did in mainline service.
i also met up with Bill for an hour or so on Kidderminster station, a most pleasant interlude between trains.
