I know. Only one more run, I think. I suppose that's where she truly belongs, but we'll miss her. William and I had a good long look at the engine later in the day. It was also the final day in steam of the Stanier mogul which is due a heavy overhaul.
Best wishes,

Andrew

A qualified rendering of the beautiful winter light and of the beauty of the engine, Andrew.

Nice to see 44871 again in this fine shot Andrew. Glad its going to Bury soon. I've already got pictures of it there when I was with CliffP, also at speed on the main lines in Cumbria.
I get to Kidderminster, or rather Bewdley, quite often.

I think the SVR is probably the "best" preserved standard gauge line, David. Although there are several I've not been to. We love the WSR, of course, but the presentation of the coaches on the SVR, for example, puts it in a different league. (Scenery's best in West Somerset, of course!)
Best wishes,

Andrew

The SVR is one of the very best preserved steam railways Andrew, I think it's equal first along with the North Yorkshire Moors line.
