7802 was out with 6 coaches today. I saw it enter Kidderminster at lunchtime. Only a fool, such as me, tries filming in the windy conditions on the footbridge today, unless you have expensive microphones and wind muffs that eliminate the noise - I used part of a (fake) furry collar from one of Mrs S's old jackets (don't tell her!)

I've put a photo taken from the video on my blog, along with a link to the video. 1501 is seen departing then 7802 is given the road and enters the station.

Sorry about the wind noise!!!

The Railway Magazine 2015 December issue arrived through my letter box this morning, on the front page with pride of place going to 7812 in a nighttime shot at Bewdley, more on page 72....

The Instagram feeds Twitter, which in turn feeds the website front page through a thumbnail. I picked it up via Twitter

Fair enough, I did wonder if that was the case and it fed Twitter. I'd forgotten about the feed to the website. Twitter can be used to feed Facebook, that would reach more people I'd say.

A tale of two Manors, gleaned from social media.

On Febriary 19th 7802 suffered a broken spring hanger. 7812 was sent out to carry on the service, 7802 ran light back to Bridgnorth. The spring hanger was replaced so that the locos could swap again on AS1 second round trip at Bridgnorth. All was dealt with quickly and efficiently thanks to GWR standard parts, the wheeldrop and hydraulic weighing kit.

On February 20th 7812 had a problem with its steam heat - it will work its train this afternoon as booked, but 7802 will run the evening diner instead.

The 1.27 arrival at KR was (almost exactly) 1 hour late while the last arrival was only 20 mins late.

Has the electronic weighing system been abandoned?

Doesn't that require platform 1 road to be clear?

Yes it does. I presumed the work on the platform extension would have been finished in time for the half-term break.

I was referring more to the railway being open and platform 1 being in use for service trains.

Not as far as I know, but, as I understand it, the hydraulic kit gives a quick, adequate, get you back in service, set-up which can be refined later with the electronic stuff.

There are quite a number of occasions when p1 is free on table A. for example AS2 uses p2 for nearly an hour having passed the up at HL
