Additional Traffic Notice for Sunday 25th Oct indicates that 60163 will be turned at Kidderminster after arrival of BN1 at 1210

I imagine this is in preparation for it's departure from the SVR

Yes, it was turned on arrival at Kidder. At Arley I got it tender first on the southbound run, then tender first again on the nortbound run - not exactly what is wanted - BUT - I went to see it on the climb from Bewdley to the tunnel, chimney first (yippeee) late afternoon. The light was fading fast & the train was very late - but the video came out well.

It's now booked to go with its support coach from Bridgnorth to Kidder on Sunday afternoon [Nov 1st]. It's not being left in the Exchange siding tho, so not sure when the move south will be.

Will it be under it's own power from Bridgnorth to Kiddy, or pulled by the Cl 20 ?

Timings on Sunday are Bridgnorth dep. 3:55, Arley cross AN1 4:31, Bewdley cross DMU 4:47, Kidderminster arrive 4:58. To take water at Kidderminster and then store in CS6 (is that the line outside the carriage shed?).

CS6 is the carriage washing plant road on the far side of the carriage shed from the main line.

CS6 is the wash plant line, CS1 is siding next to the main and loop.

I commend you both for working out that, despite both lines being outside the shed, which line I was (wrongly) referring to!

Still no incoming move before Tornado leaves, so will it be running on its own?

Report elsewhere (I think FB) that it will be under its own power.

Though there are still persistent claims that a diesel is expected...

Tbf I was surprised that was being reported that it would be under its own power as I was under the impression that DCR has the contract for the moves and they don't sign for steam....I suppose we'll find out tomorrow for certain.
