I seem to remember reading something about one of them not being in use at the moment (?) but didn't realise 2 more were to be installed. It was only when I was waiting to see 7802 depart yesterday that I noticed them.

One will be the replacement for the missing (well, not in that photo!) 1EL water column, with the replacement work taking longer than expected. I'd hazard a guess that the other is to replace the one on 2EL?

So just replacements then, I remember seeing the one adjacent to the car park but didn't notice the other had been removed.

It was in the report 16.1.18 http://www.svrlive.com/winter-works-2018

Have a check on https://www.svrwiki.com/Kidderminster#Water_columns which includes the current replacement work

The column nearest the fence line is the orignal column. The one in line with the cab is the replacement. The original column I believe is intended to be placed in the KRM as it is the original column from underneath the water tank.

That explains it all, I don't have time to read up on everything and concentrate more on what I can film somewhere locally.

Ah, did I count two separate parts of a single new column on the right as two individual columns? I can see how they'd fit together now, on further inspection.

The new column is the same type as on EL2. The 0ld column had a bag which had to be drages up omto the tender / tank. The new one will be much easier to use being swung over the filler

I can't remember where the 'new' one came from, but it had a straight horizontal delivery pipe until modified at Bridgnorth over the last few months to put a swan-neck in it to raise the top of the bag. A cast grating has also been modified to use with it. This had been waiting patiently for many years in the cattle dock at Bridgnorth, in the four foot, near where Catch Me Who Can currently lives.
