Steam Train on the former GWR network about to enter the Bewdley Tunnel.
Incidentally this is near where they filmed Charles Dickens’ ‘The Signal-man’.
"The Signal-Man" was adapted by Andrew Davies as the BBC’s Ghost Story for Christmas for 1976, with Denholm Elliott as the principal character. This BBC production was filmed on the Severn Valley Railway, a fake signal box was erected in the cutting on the Kidderminster side of Bewdley Tunnel, and the interior signal-box pictures were filmed in Highley signalbox.
I love trains.

The Severn Valley Railway’s Spring Steam Gala 2014. Saturday 22nd March 2014.
A feast of Great Western Steam on a classic GWR branchline featuring a number of visiting engines working alongside the SVR’s Home Fleet! In use were;
|GWR 14xx Class 1450 ((And Auto Coaches 178 and 238) on long term loan to the SVR from the Dean Forest Railway).
|WR 16xx Pannier Tank 1638 (From the Kent and East Sussex Railway, newly painted in BR Unlined Black with Early Emblems).

|WR 78xx ‘Manor’ Class 7828 ‘Odney Manor’ (From the West Somerset Railway)
|WR 15xx Pannier Tank 1501
|GWR 28xx Class 2857
|GWR 45xx Class 4566 (Newly repainted into BR Unlined Black with Early Emblems)
|GWR 78xx ‘Manor’ Class 7812 ‘Erlestoke Manor’
A fantastic event held by the Severn Valley. The nice spring weather and some fine performances by the locos and a chance to see 16xx Pannier 1638 (One i’ve been after for a while!) in amongst the lineup was a real highlight and 4566 looks amazing in her new BR Black livery.
