Winter steam on the SVR
Sunny Severnside Santas

It's December - and with the prospect of a fine sunny afternoon once the morning mist and fog had cleared, I headed for the southern part of the Severn Valley Railway (again!) to see what was going on. At first, inevitably - everything was the wrong way round. Of the five locos in action, only two were facing the right way up the bank from Bewdley to Foley Park tunnel - fortunately, these would be the last two before the sun dipped below the hill. So, after a false start near Northwood, I took camera and tripod to the southernmost point of the line. No further explanation is required - enjoy the pictures! Link: Severn Valley Railway
