Thanks Mike. I did see it on the turntable and filmed some of the shunting.

4 minutes or so of D3201 shunting 70759 at Kidderminster on Friday. Another one of my "not much real action" videos, unless you like Class 172 units passing by as I was filming!! Well, somebody has to catch these moments.

I did film it being turned but after 5 minutes it still had a way to go. The guy cranking the handle had obviously only had 1 Weetabix for breakfast!!

Just happened to notice this photo I have from 2005 of 70759 at Bewdley. Interesting to compare it with how it looks now.

Gosh what a difference That was non 4th June the day it moved up from Kidderminster. What amazed us was the piece of vacuum pipe sat on the running boards, it traveled all the way from the south Devon like that!

We wanted to keep the David & Charles livery but the Station Master said it was out of keeping with the ambiance at Bewdley;

spoilsport!
