svra4 charter oldbury cutting.jpg

 

Tuesday dawned bright but cold and it was time to head off to the Severn Valley Railway for a day on the railway in the company of the LNER A4 Class No. 4464, Bittern. Recentley returned to her own name after running as the Dominion of New Zealand for a year, Bittern looked superb in the LNER Blue livery and full side valances at the head of a rake of LNER Teak bodied coaches.

 

She is seen here in Olbdury Cutting just south of Bridgenorth.

A lovely heart warming sight Les: how wonderful to have proper Gresley coaches behind the loco too!
Les Auld: It just does look the part Chris, thanks for the comment.
A classic train picture. My old and sadly late friend Graham Trevor would have approved. He loved chasing trains when he wasn't trying to teach Maths!
Les Auld: A wise man then Bill, thanks for the comment.
She`s a beauty! Lovely capture - the warm light is particularly appealing in this one. (:o)
Les Auld: It was a good day in the valley Rosalyn, thanks for the comment.
Great shot Les, If I remember rightly, we used to call these 'streaks', though we rarely saw one up here.
Les Auld: I knew them as streaks as well Frank, I remember going to Doncaster to see them in the early sixties. Thanks for the comment.

Man! She's a beauty, Les!
Les Auld: She is indeed Ginnie, thanks for the comment.
Excellent picture Les, don't kid me it was taken this week, it must have been the 1930's surely smile
Les Auld: Just hopped back in time in my time machine Brian, thanks for the comment.
