Soon This Famous Engine Will Be Back In Steam

The Severn Valley Railway runs from Kidderminster in Worcestershire and Bridgnorth in Shropshire, a distance of approximately sixteen miles. It has been operating for over 50 years. Definitely worth a visit.

 

This weekend they ran their Autumn Steam Gala featuring the following locomotives.

No. 1450 Available for traffic
No. 1501 returned from hire to Nene Valley Railway. Washout & repairs
No. 2857 Available for traffic.
No. 4566 Available for traffic. Must be at Bridgnorth Sunday night for washout
No. 7812 Erlestoke Manor Available for traffic. Must be at Bridgnorth Tuesday night to go out on hire.
No. 34027 Taw Valley Available for traffic
No. 34053 Sir Keith Park Available for traffic
No. 43106 Available for traffic; Must be at Bridgnorth Sunday night to go out on hire.
No 46100 Royal Scot Must be at Bridgnorth Sunday night.
No 46521 Must be at Bridgnorth Sunday night
No 70000 Britannia Must be at Bridgnorth Sunday night.

It is quite a roster!

They tell me that during the course of next year they will be running the Tornado and Flying Scotsman around September/October.

I am sure everyone will be more than happy to see this famous locomotive back in service. Apparently she will be hauling a special from Kings Cross to York early in 2016 to mark her return to service.

Here is a video of this weekends action featuring some great sight and sound of Britannia working hard.
