I haven't visited the Severn Valley Railway for some years but friends of the site have sent me these photos, the first selection were sent in by Paul Pearson who also supplied the captions.

1501WR 15XX Class 0-6-0PT Hawksworth O/C Pannier, passing Trimpley reservoirs. Pulling LNER teak set.

 

7714 at Arley

The Pannier again 7714, sat in Arley station (home of Malcolm the cat. inset) My favourite station, and one of my favourite cats. They do wonderful tea in the tea shop behind the station buildings, which I look forward to greatly during long summer walks along the river.
 

7714 at Hampton Loade

GWR 57XX 0-6-0PT Collett Pannier,7714, on the last few yards before Hampton Loade station with the 'Blood and custard set.' The smaller engines such as Pannier tanks are predominant during the winter months, when smaller coach sets are used. (They also happen to be my favourites)

7802 at Northwood Halt

GWR "Manor" Class 4-6-0 Collett 7802 Bradley Manor, passing Northwood Halt with coach loads of kids on one of 2002's Santa Special days. The driver was sporting a fine Rudolph hat which is not visible in the shot, but was worthy of mention.

45110 LMSR Stanier 5MT 4-6-0, with GWR set, approaching Victoria Bridge, just south of Arley.
