SKP in trouble this afternoon on a northbound working, tender first, stalled on Eardington bank. I am pretty sure the rail was dry at the time, although it did start to rain a little later.
Diner held at Bridgnorth and departed about 35 late once SKP managed to reach Bridgnorth.

Does SKP not have back sanders as yet?

No disrespect to a fine locomotive, but it should be interesting if it rains in Yorkshire, with that difficult start out of Keighley.

Yeah, but I'll put it this way, 34027 has a lot less problems than 34053....

Seen on another forum: SKP having difficulty with the K & WVR, going "uphill".
Likely to be piloted by a "Derby4" (43924) ... Wink

(Update Saturday:- that information might be suspect now)

In case you're not aware [from the SVR Official Facebook Page]

"We'll be bidding a fond farewell to Sir Keith Park at the end of the year, so our Autumn Steam Gala will be one of your last chances to travel behind it!

No. 34053 has been resident on the Severn Valley Railway since its inaugural run in 2012, and has steamed up many highlights. Some memorable moments include; the Steam and Morgan car challenge in October 2012, and the inauguration ceremony of the loco in August 2013, which involved a flypast from a Spitfire and Hurricane at Bridgnorth.

The agreement for operating the locomotive with Southern Locomotives Limited (SLL) has a break clause every two years, with the next renewal date at the end of 2017. We have mutually agreed that the option to renew will not be actioned at the end of this year, with 'SKP' moving to the Swanage Railway for the rest of the locomotive's certificate. This is a mutual agreement with the owning group, and leaves every opportunity for further locos from the SLL fleet to visit in future years.

A farewell weekend for the engine is likely to take place in November, with No. 34053 operating alongside No. 34027 Taw Valley for, what could be, the last time.

We would like to thank Southern Locomotives Ltd for all of their work and assistance, and for allowing ‘Skip’ to run at the Severn Valley Railway for the last five years. We are sure that she (or is it he) will continue to be a popular locomotive and a consistent performer at the Swanage Railway for the remainder of its boiler certificate."


I personally won't shed any tears at its departure!!! A good chance to start using more economical locos. Just lighting up a Bulleid Pacific uses an awful lot of coal!!

Does this departure potentially leave us short of motive power next Summer?
The Standard 4 is due back to replace the "Manor" that comes out of ticket, and I assume 42968 is some way off.
