We had a brilliant day on the SVR between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth today. Of all the preserved railways I have been on this is the best and most picturesque.

Just a couple of shots of 2 of the locos in action and a brief glimpse of 34053 Sir Keith Park in front of the engine sheds at Bridgnorth.

The engine sheds at Bridgnorth. SKP is at the back .

Ray I couldn't find anyone able/or willing to give me a sitrep on SKP. :( He looks complete though with no obvious sign of any rectification work being carried out.

Great pics Ian. Thank you.

Yes, I must agree with you about the SVR; a very picturesque Railway. The 'North Yourkshire Moors Railway', 'Swanage Railway' and the 'Kent & East Sussex Railway' all come joint second though, in my opinion, out of those which I have travelled on/visited.

I have heard nothing more about SKP either. (My contact there is currently on a 'Land's End to John O'Groats' Charity Bike Ride).
