The Senior Railcard will come in handy again.

9th April for the 82045 AGM, and 16th April for this event.

Actually I am pleased that they don't clash.

The model layouts are listed on http://www.svr.co.uk/SEItem.aspx?a=67 but it is not clear where they are to be located.

P.S.

AIUI the event information and timetable document was signed off last week so should be available soon.

The timetable will essentially be timetable C with shuttles, I'm told.

Excellent timetable from Kidderminster, with four full-line departures by 12 noon, and one departure as far as Highley ( where the majority of the model layouts will be located).

Credit to those who have drafted the timetables. With hindsight a timetable such as this one would have done much to prevent overcrowding when we had 60163 and 46100 last Autumn.


I assume the Bridgnorth boiler shop will again be locked and out of bounds. It is a pity, the boiler work is an interesting part of the Bridgnorth operation. Surely the roller shutter doors at the North end could be open for viewing without actually allowing visitors entry?

Otherwise it should be an excellent weekend. Senior Railcard in action again.

Conversely I did notice that the first BH departure at the standard 11.00, a full hour and a half after KR, which does shorten the day out from there.

Yes, it does look like a late start from Bridgnorth. Otherwise there is the 10-45 " ex-Highley southbound local service with the toplights, but having only arrived at Highley at 10-05 from Kidderminster,doesn't really give enough time to take in all the model railway layouts at the Engine House, unless you are fleet of foot.
So unless you treat this train as a round trip, I cannot see much patronage for the 10-45 ex- Highley southbound.

Looking at it again one gets a maximum 9 hours from the Kidder end and 7 from BH.

My wife had a 5pm cut off time when our kids were little. In practice parents with tired kids who have a cut off time earlier than 6.03 arrival have to get the 4.12 arrival, giving a five-hour day. The Kidder arrival of 4.47 gives seven.

They are noticeable differences.
