It's the delivery of 6 redundant Seacows from DB. NBI should be out later this week.

A bit of googling came up with some images:

Where are they going? Is there room at Eardington?
I just learned of this site, https://raildar.co.uk/map/KID It says it records the actual time for all passenger and freight trains, so it should be possible to watch them arrive in real time. I wonder if it will work for the Northern Belle as well?

Just compared it with Railcam diagram and it was very similar for trains at Old Hill and Langley, also Stourbridge, but one at Kidder northbound didn't show. Also the freight at Round Oak isn't showing, due through Stourbridge in about 15 minutes.

EDIT - just "watched" the Round Oak freight run through Stourbridge on Railcam, but it didn't show on Raildar. Perhaps it is passenger only, unless there is another setting to show freight? You can always check RTT for times passing stations/junctions as it runs.

Do you know I was thinking the same thing. With these wagons, the Pullman train and plenty of diesel loco's is there a plan for more sidings?

Traksy is a free site that covers Kidderminster (and most other places!) - certainly shows the link to/from SVR. https://traksy.uk/live/M+31+KDRMNST

trailing load 715 tonnes

That sounds a lot for six empty wagons.

Never trust the weights or timed for speeds on RTT, they related to how the timings have been calculated rather than the actually load/speed.
