Information extracted from the Vintage Trains web site.

'We are proposing the following mainline day out for panniers No’s 9600 & 9466. We plan to depart from Tyseley Warwick Road with the Panniers top and tailing the train. We reverse direction for the run to Stratford-upon-Avon along the North Warwick line. After a short photo stop at Stratford, we reverse again back along the North Warwick line, through Birmingham’s Snow Hill Tunnels, then leaving Network Rail metals at Kidderminster in favour of our friends at the Severn Valley Railway and onwards to our next break at Bridgnorth'.

Provisional timings shown.

Without the changes explicitly marked, I think a summary of the changes is as follows:

2.45 ex KR to run 45 minutes later, departing KR 3.30.
4.50 ex BH to run 45 minutes later, departing BH 5.35.

SVR working timetable suggests different time to Vintage Trains website only giving passengers on charter 52 minutes in Bridgnorth not 2 and a bit hours.

The fireman on the lead Pannier was rearranging his coal supply before the duo left Kidderminster this afternoon for Bridgnorth. There appeared to be a rather depleted supply in the bunker.
No doubt a fill-up was going to happen at Bridgnorth!

I noticed he did appear to be rather low down in the bunker as I was waiting to film it departing. It will be quite a few hours before video uploaded as DMU, 813, 7714 & 43106 also get in on the action - so be patient!! Playing time about 25 minutes!!

The day was so short, sharpo, I noticed the light fading as the special left Kidderminster, and that was only 2-45.

Drove back to Hereford "in the gloom" !

It certainly took rather a lot of bucketfuls of coal at Bridgnorth!

Talking about the gloom, filmed it at Old Hill this evening, didn't risk getting bowled and stayed on the bridge. Sounds good though:-

The Kidder video is only 25% loaded, so have to wait until Sunday morning.....

That's it, all 24 minutes or so from yesterday at Kidderminster when the tour arrived, supporting cast of DMU, 12099, 813, 7714, 43106 and miniature railway. Just like a gala!

Ah, fame at last, I was standing a little further up the footpath from you and appear briefly on your sequence of the panniers departing KDR at 2-45.

A good day, plenty of activity on the SVR.

Just out of interest, my trip up to BH yesterday behind 43106 was quite uninspiring, very cautious driving, a complete contrast to earlier in the month riding behind 7714, a truly inspirational trip!

Why did the charter train have an hour's rest at KDR? It's pity it wasn’t run a month earlier it was dusk at BH by 4pm, by 4.30pm it was almost dark and I found it hard to take any photos. Ah well, there's always the future to take better photos of 9466 & 9600. They was great to see.

Timetable, to fit in around SVR services and Footplate Experience.

The water carrier too was detached on arrival and reattached (presumably refilled?) before return to NR

The traffic notice on SVRLive has details

We all remember videos for different reasons. I had quite a few people contact me after seeing themselves cycling in the Velo Birmingham event.

It's only when I view my videos at home that I see properly what I have filmed, it's always fascinating to recognise familiar faces in a crowd.

Did you notice the driver of 7714 give a little "bow" to the photographers as the train arrived?
