    Unlikely but I would imagine running into the night could be a prospect. 2006 was the last ASG it appeared in LMS livery so it's been a while, looking forward to it.

    Hello, yes, my comment was somewhat 'tongue in cheek'! Delighted to see this loco is booked for this wonderful 'festival' and I managed a couple of (rubbish) shots in the dark at Bewdley last time the loco visited as well as a trip behind her.

    6233 also appearing at East Lancs in Oct according to Heritage Railway. Nothing yet on website.
    If 34092 still there and No 9 hangs around, not a bad three to start with.

    Advance warning, due to the rebuild of the mainline station there will be traffic lights on Comberton Hill outside the station.

    Timetable looks good, much more frequent full line service with most trains taking 1hr 8 or 1hr 23 end to end KR to BH and 1hr 20 the other way, not bad at all.

    Looks like 4 'main sets', one local and auto. Look forward to it! Hopefully some Goods in the day time?

    Attractions include:
    • Overnight running on Friday and Saturday with No. 7802 Bradley Manor and 'Flying Pig' No. 43106.
    • Autotrains with No. 1450, using one (push-pull) or two coaches (sandwich mode).
    • Early morning walk-on breakfast train from Bridgnorth and Kidderminster on Saturday and Sunday.
    • Severn Valley Limited Dining Train on Sunday.
    • Eardington Halt open for visits (trains will not stop here).
    • Full line and local services to-ing and fro-ing.
    • Paddock Railway and Coalyard Miniature Railway in steam.
    • Step inside The Engine House to see two new residents: Small Prairie No. 4566 and Pannier Tank No. 5764.
    Provisional locomotive roster:
    • Thursday: 2857, 7714, 6233 Duchess of Sutherland, 63395 + TBC.
    • Friday: 1450, 2857, 7714, 6233 Duchess of Sutherland, 34027 Taw Valley, 45231 The Sherwood Forester, 63395 + TBC.
