    Yes I am an active volunteer
    This route is a lot better signposted now that it's the route to the main car park! Just go along the back of the workshops instead of up the hill

    In the last of the evening light S3020001.JPG 34092 works away from Hay Bridge with the 17.27 from Kidderminster. Still from forthcoming video.

    I'm coming on Saturday and really hoping to catch the Q. I'm buying the WTT on the day, but could anyone give me clue as to which trains the Q might be hauling?

    As the railway is now running continuously until Sunday evening, I assume that Kiddy car park won't be locked overnight tonight or tomorrow night? I'm having to work today, got tickets for tomorrow and Sunday (and the WTT) so will be driving up this evening. Thanks.

    6960 at Oldbury with 0825 from Bridgnorth. Loco was still exhibiting light engine headlamp code so I moved it to correct position for a stopping passenger train. 20 09 2019

    Been an excellent two days.
    Unfortunately overnight train behind 1501 ruined by a few very loud volunteers /staff having zero consideration for the majority of their coach trying to sleep .Too much swearing and personal information of others being divulged and I'm hearing every word 3/4 of a coach away .Whoever X is he's stuck up and an a###hole for example.I really don't need that at 0330.
    Unable to sleep better knowing Chief Gobby's arse was for exit use only .
    Perhaps designated quiet coaches required in future.

    2857 is currently replacing 30541 on the 0630 ex Kiddy. No idea of the reason why.

    That's a shame. Seemed in very good form yesterday - hope it can be repaired quickly.

    Anyone know what 1450's issues were last night? The 19:50 non-stop had a few very random stops! Seemed to be struggling to hold vacuum and went very smartly for water on arrival at Kidderminster.
