I've seen a couple of comments on "one of" the blue coaches.

http://www.svrwiki.com/Carriages_visiting_the_SVR shows only one. Can someone shed any light on it please?

I think the other blue one is 9513. They were from the Fragonset "Blue Pullman".


The consist on the Kiddy - Bewdley shuttle was antiquated to put it delicately, or they was "Steptoe Coach stock". LOL.

One of the "Pullman" coach looked look somebody had just splashed some paint on it and hoped for the best.

Did the aircon still work on them? They looked well past their scrapping date.
The aircon efficiency was mixed but they are designed to work with all windows closed which does not happen at a gala. Whilst the exteriors were not pristine the interiors were good and the riding qualities excelent. Whilst they might benefit from a bit of TLC they were far from candidates for the scap line.

As a little extra on the blue coaches, just found this photo of the "Blue Pullman" at Droitwich, taken many years ago.



The following link, conveniently, has entries to the Mk 2 coaches at the top of the list (at the moment) - if anybody wants more details.

Noticed earlier that Eastern Rail Services site has vanished.

If anybody is stuck for something to do, I have created 5 playlists of videos from day 1 of the gala. It starts at about 9.15 and runs through to about 4.30pm. and will take about 1 hour 45 minutes to play them all, but you can easily pick the clips you want to see.

Locos seen are 31271, 33035, 33108, 45041, 45060, 50007, 50008, 50031, 57306, 57307, 55022 (as 55018) 60100, 66771, 73107, 73965, 88003, D1062, D2960, D3022, D4100, D8568 and D9551. An impressive list of locos!

Also the news hyperlink mentions that quite a large number of the DVD "30 Years of SVR Diesels" were sold. It all adds to the income. This DVD showing the best of the diesel galas between 1987 and 2016 was a good idea and quite a good introduction/commentary.

Video playlists for Friday of the gala:-
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHQytZ3VLjAt75IVdfsiERwoGUWH_LK72
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHQytZ3VLjAuva_PPOU-EF8RKNj64ZuRx

Playlists for Saturday:-

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHQytZ3VLjAvBTaWtfcgcslsfpsak6350

A quick count of all the loco numbers I filmed moving during the gala came to 29, but that did include D1015 running on the Sunday.

Is there any chance of that number being beaten here or on any other preserved railway in the future?

Perhaps one day soon I will finish the videos from the 2016 gala......

Hi Tim

I can't recall seeing a final number beyond the estimated one posted on SVRLive on 26 May, which you quoted above, and which was quoted in the June Branch Lines/Express Points. The next editions are due out on Sunday, there might be something in there?

Regards

Patrick
