Severn Valley Departure

Another image from our recent visit to the Severn Valley Railway in April.

Taken from the balcony of the Engine House, a museum they have built at Highley, the train is dissapearing in to the cutting on its way towards Kidderminster.

Very reminiscent of the 1950s Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris and I like the fact that the engine can't be seen.
Let's put back all the railways and go back to steam. It might not be practical but it would be delightful.
Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more Chad.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bernado.
Must say I'm not used to seeing only one track? Lovely picture as usual.
Brian Walbey: Most of the heritage lines are single track Martin, thanks for the compliment.
I think we should bring back steam trains, Dixon of Dock Green, Crackerjack and the Potters Wheel.
Brian Walbey: As usual Ogden you hit the nail on the head.

Looks like a postcard, Brian, lovely capture. Where were you standing for this one?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mia. To the right is a large museum building with railway items and by the restaurant on the 1st.floor is a balcony looking out over the railway. That is where I took the picture from. You can read about it here http://www.svr.co.uk/enginehouse.php
