When i took a trip on the Severn Valley Railway back in late June it was the first time i had been on the line for thirty odd years but now i've been on it again within a couple of months. This time just a short trip up to Bewdley, somewhere else i have not been for a long time. In fact it was when i went on a camping trip with the Cub Scouts to Bewdley, and thats when i was probably on the SVR last before this year too. Today our haulage was Southern Region in the shape of a Battle of Britain Pacific.
Unfortunately it rained all the time we were in Bewdley so that put a literal damper on things but i took some nice photos, you can see the SVR ones here. I must return soon, preferably on a dry day.

Hillman Avenger at Coventry Transport Museum, an example of a 70s British car. Much maligned by many but much missed by me, its quite rare to see a car like this on the roads these days. I did see a lovely Allegro a few weeks ago...

A narrowboat entering a narrow lock at Banbury. As i found while writing my dissertation different lock widths across Britain's canal network had a detrimental effect on the flow of goods and economic potential of the waterways... anyway lets not get into that again right now!
