    Advanced weather forecast suggests it might be a bit wet but then again advanced forecasts often need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

    Normal fares and Bridgnorth MPD and Bewdley Yard open for visits as well as signalbox visits at Kidderminster, Bewdley North and Bridgnorth. Come on folks.

    The BBC weather forecast has improved slightly for weekend: less rain on Saturday and it might only threaten to do so on Sunday.

    Enjoyable visit on the Sunday. Not quite as cold as Saturday apparently.

    Good to see works progress on 813, 7714, 4930, 42968, 75069, and 82045.

    The "Engine House" was busy, a number of model railways, the model tramway, and the Cuneo exhibition.

    Trains were busy but not overcrowded, managed to get a seat both ways.

    Watched one of the Bulleids trying to get away from Bridgnorth, what a performance! Crept away in a cloud of smoke and steam. By contrast Erlestoke Manor did the same with no dramatics at all. ( No bias, just reporting the facts...)
