Steaminfo reporting the Bridgnorth to Kiddie leg has been scrapped !
Due to an unforseen problem the WCR stock will not run on SVR. The RTC tour will still comence from Bridgnorth using SVR stock and power to Kidderminster. In the evening SVR will provide stock and power to return patrons to Bewdley and Bridgnorth. This information has been sent to ticket holders
Didn't RTC use the WCR stock on the Blue Bell Explorer from Bridgnorth ?
I can see now my wording can be misinterpreted. What I mean is will not be available to run on SVR. It will be available for the tour.
Do you know the timings for the Bridgnorth to Kidderminster leg ? And is it SKP hauling the train ? Regards, Liam
The timings apear to be as originally advertised by RTC 0700 depaqrture, 7.46 Bewdley. The e-mail to ticket holders mentions SKP
O.K, Cheers. Should SKP be facing smokebox to Kidd ?
Curious what the issue is that prevents WCRC from going to Bridgnorth, given it's MK1's shoulden't be all that different to SVR internal MK1's.
It is unlikely to be purely physical as only last Thursday Kinlett Hall & POB used the link. Speculation would be fruitless. Will need to see what pans out.
The latest update to the itinerary should save a light engine diesel move to Bristol as there is no need to run top 'n tail from Bristol - Kidderminster. <BJ>
Purely speculation. But the LE diesel move will still be necessary for the return from Bristol - Kidderminster. I assume the stock will still arrive onto the SVR and stable in the main/ exchange overnight with 34067 coming into the yard to turn and take up residence somewhere in Kidderminster station
According to the SVR On line forum D1062 for the return Kidderminster-Bridgnorth leg.
The ECS move from Southall due 9.25 apears not to have left yet. I dont know how many sets there are at Southall but one did not arrive back from Kings Cross until 0008. This would not leave time to clean for a 9.25 departure if cleaners were on days
The ECS for this trip have left Southall.
Other than it has left Southall. Any report on this? Nothing to be shewn on RTT.

Now coming up as cancelled throughout due to an unknown problem, where this leave the tour.
Dont start panicking yet.
That was a Steam Dreams trip though so a different set of coaches. There'll be a new path for the stock later today.
There is s Southall Locomotive services (rather than WCR) path to Kidderminster which states empty coaching stock, due to depart at 14:30 http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/O01014/2014/05/23/advanced
it did leave Southall wcr at 9.55 but for some reason got no further than Southall STL.
