Small prairie leaves Arley by the flags
The SVR's small prairie 4566 leaves Arley on the local train to Highley at the Autumn Gala. Because the train shared the platform with another local train for Bewdley which should have left first, the Northbound train departed on a flag signal. A fascinating example of the GWR's signalling regulations, which made it the safest of Britain's railways.
