Severn Valley Railway - 4x2's day out
« on: September 19, 2014, 11:28:34 PM »
Had a great day out yesterday (Thursday) at the Severn Valley Railway. It was the Autumn Steam Gala preveiw day and took a few pics, too many to upload in one go so here's a couple of the better ones... I just started shooting pics in RAW format and it certainly makes a difference, standard JPEGS loose loads when the file is compressed. So far i'm very pleased with the results....

Highley Station


BR Standard 2-6-0 43106


S&D No 88 (my favourite ! :heart2:)

I love the Severn Valley Railway.  I was there just over a week ago, I got to ride behind the Western and Prarie tank.  A blue Deltic was on a private charter (and sounded magnificent) and there was a BR Standard 5 MT with unusual valve gear (Capriotti?).

Your photos are great, especially the picture of Highley station.

Here's a few more pics, I didn't take as many as I thought... :doh:  Never mind, here's the best of the rest i'm happy to show.
No worries though, I went to the Bluebell Railway today so i've got some more ! I'll put them in a new thread.

Great pics Mike thankyou, I really must find time to visit the SVR on one of my visits, went on it more years ago than I can remember (must have been its early days) so another visit is a must.

Was chatting to one of the lads in Hereford Models; he'd been to the all-night running @ the SVR & showed us some pics & vids he did on his phone ... looked very nice :)

 :greatpicturessign: Really nice  :thumbsup:

Our much delayed relocation will be 8 miles west (ish) of Worcester.

Should all the lawyers get their heads together and agree dates, I will look forward to visiting the SVR in the near future.

Unusual to see one with "proper" valve gear. Didn't know any were made like that.

That was AFAIK the only batch with outside valve gear and a British Rail oddity (though GWR design post war). The top half is basically a 94xx the bottom half is modelled much more on US practice. They weren't very good.

1501 (sort of ) survives - its actually 1501 plus chunks of 1502 and 1509 as the SVR made one good one out of the three trashed ones they got from the NCB.

A few others had outside cylinders  (eg 1366)
