Welshpool & Llanfair narrow gauge 26 May 2009

Some snaps taken on a trip to the Welshpool & Llanfair narrow gauge railway on 26 May 2009 organised by the late Robin Peart. It is one of the few railways that you can ride in the open balcony at the end of some of the coaches and a picture shows the late Billy Ewins a very long serving mechanic at...

Re: 33404 goes X50 to Evesham

I hope Johnsons are getting good money for that abomination of a livery! I was walking along the 'high-level' path from Angel Place to Crowngate Shopping Centre to get out of the rain and this vehicle passed below. I muttered "what the **** is that?" and in that split second thought it was a traini...

Just in case we are all plunged back into lockdown I ventured out on my local 37 bus into Worcester today Monday 12 October and struck lucky with photograph of 33404 working the X50 from Crowngate bus station to Evesham. A bit slow for an express service with that four speed direct top gearbox in pl...

Re: 53062 Riversider.

Thanks for the information, it might answer why I saw a 'Riversider' Solo driving steadily along Ombersley Road passed Green Lane in direction of city centre at 06-40 am on Monday or Tuesday; I assumed it to be 53065, but didn't identify it in the dark so it may have been 53062 on test prior to rele...

It is pictured in Crowngate bus station mid morning yesterday Thursday 1 October 2020.

37116 & 37025 at Shrub Hill 30 Sep. 2020

Lunchtime action in the rain at Worcester today. 37116 and 37025 'Inverness TMD' are seen working through Shrub Hill on a Network rail test train operating from Swansea to Derby via Whitland, Malvern Wells and Kidderminster. The number of reversals necessitates the 'top-and-tail' mode with an engine...
