Lovely couple of days at the SVR.  Walking yesterday, Bewdley to Highley with lunch by Victoria Bridge.   Timed well so as two trains passed including one hauled by 2999.  Reserved compartment today, a bit chilly at 830am but a glorious day in Worcestershire and Shropshire!  Well done SVR on a great event.

I've only been dipping in and kept missing 2999.

 

But had a look earlier and there was a post on the sidebar/comments thing saying it was broke. Then there was a load of comments so the important comment disappeared.

 

Not a biggie, but I only caught it twice. Once at the buffers at Kiddie and leaving with the LNER teaks. Both posted above.

For the sake of clarity it is a pin in the rocker bar. There is not much room behind it for the nut and certainly not enough room for a cotter. The nut came loose and meant it could move around which damaged the pin. This was removed on Saturday evening, unfortunately one from Hagley Hall was found to be a different size so a new one is being made and fitted this week. The engine went onto the wheel drop yesterday afternoon and should be running again by the end of the week.

Here is the loco on Friday, with motion pin still in place. I had sprinted from the train onto the bridge, as the northbound train was still some way off. Very odd seeing all the intermediate stations closed up and deserted.

I wonder how many people would have noticed if on Sunday they'd just swapped the Lady Of Legend nameplates to 6960? All GWR 4-6-0s look much the same, don't they?!

Thanks for the one pager very helpful

 

When the camera's went live I'm certain I was able to scroll back along the red line at the bottom of the screen to see activity say 3 hours ago. I don't seem to be able to do so anymore. I sent a message to the SVR about a week ago and have rec'd no response. I watch a number of live streams on Utube of the activity in Southampton docks and have always been able to 'track back'

 

Does anyone have a solution or is the problem just my settings perhaps? Live Utube can be very therapeutic but watching nothing moving does not do it for me.

I understand that is the intention that they are only 'live' and you cannot go back in time. I do not remember them going back but only looked for the first time about a week after they went live.

There’s something quite therapeutic about checking in on the SVR webcams every now and again. I’ve been enjoying the diesel gala from afar this weekend. 
 

We were fortunate enough to visit the other week for the last of ‘Lady of Legend’s’ running days. Here are a few photos of the diesels we saw:BAFE3960-045C-4AF5-8AA4-EFCBCD04BFD8.jpeg.fb12764ade95258f7f101ca11cc01432.jpeg

And a few of the star of the show, 2999 ‘Lady of Legend’ visiting from Didcot Railway Centre.

This weekend's Diesel Bash was rather enjoyable. Ok, so not quite what a gala used to be but, like the Steam Event the other week, the SVR pulled out all the stops to run the best event they can under the current restrictions. I travelled on Train 3 with 33108 and 47773 which was a bit of a nostalgia trip back to the 80s for me, especially with the three 50s around.
