One will be the replacement for the missing (well, not in that photo!) 1EL water column, with the replacement work taking longer than expected. I'd hazard a guess that the other is to replace the one ...

In that case, shouldn't consideration be given to altering timetables to make the time available?

There are already issues with the short turnarounds required of crews and the long working hours as ...

With the rail wagons, it would definitely have to be on the Highley side. The buildings are recognisably similar to the photo on the SVR wiki: https://www.svrwiki.com/File:Alveley_Sidings-1959-10-07.j ...

Is eight available home engines really "not many"? Admittedly half are tank engines, but still, it seems a bit hyperbolic to imply the SVR is in such dire straits that a gala could only be r ...

Graham - I too find the timetable confusing as the stations do not apear in the obvious order. The 8.20 off Bewdley gets to KD at 8.30 and Stourbridge junc at 8.50. However by a feat of time travel it ...

Reading through the 1962 WTT again, I've come across the table on page H166 specifying how BR Standard locos should be treated, which has:

As you say, all other evidence clearly indicates it is the suspension bridge across to high town, owned by the council. Sounds as if the journalistic abilities of the Bridgnorth Journal are rather que ...

Also worth noting that announcements are routinely copied across to the Official SVR Diesels Group on FB (https://www.facebook.com/groups/895472313877202/), which rivals the Unofficial (general) group ...

At BH a two-road 4/5 bogie shed at Hollybush Road CS might be possible

Preserving access to the boiler shop would be a concern. If the setup is like the Kidderminster CS, there would also the issue ...

It should be noted that the crime situation at Bewdley is possibly worse than Kidderminster in recent years. Trespass by "youths" in the Bewdley Triangle and beyond is a regular occurrence d ...
