Severn Valley Railway: enthusiasm on Opening Day, 1970.
View southward, towards Bewdley and Hartlebury - to Hampton Loade at this date: former GWR Shrewsbury - Hartlebury line. On the first day - 23/5/70 - of passenger services revived by the SVR, preserved LMS Ivatt 2MT 2-6-0 No. 46443 (built 2/50, withdrawn 3/67, restored by the SVR) is being admired by other enthusiasts as well as by me.
