    Website states top and tailing to Stratford. It doesn’t state a change in formation after Stratford but as in previous runs it’s usually double headed for the remainder of the day.

    Speaking of the website, times for SVR are outlined on the Vintage Trains website; http://www.vintagetrains.co.uk/rambler12nov2016/

    Top and tail out of Tyseley platform towards Birmingham then change of direction without any run around to get to Stratford.

    there is now a direct connection onto the SVR so no need to Top and Tail .

    My understanding is that the train will be dragged back into KDR SVR, loco's watered before progressing to Bridgnorth

    The train is due to reside at the SVR Kidderminster station from 13-37 to 14-45.

    SVR will have both 1501 and 7714 in service on Saturday, so once we arrive there will be 4 Panniers operating on the railway. Should be quite the afternoon!

    The loco allocations are not yet up on the SVRLive website, but hoping for some "Pannier" action tomorrow.

    Following a recent visit I can confirm that coming back from Bridgnorth with 7714 and load 6 was very much more uplifting than a peak season service of say a Bulleid and load eight or more !

    Is it known which way 9600 and 9466 will face on the Stratford - Bridgnorth leg?

    "It is planned that the train will have arrived at BH with 9466 leading 9600, both bunker first, the train should depart BH with 9600 leading 9466."

    (2nd hand, so given without responsibility!)

    Not quite true - 7714 replaces 1501 on BS2 diagram at 11.25, two hours before the tours arrives at Kiddy.
