For more on yesterday’s brief outing to the Severn Valley Railway, visit “Catching a Crab“, just published to Geoff’s Rail Diaries.
An unusual visitor to the Severn Valley Railway this weekend – an ex-LMS Horwich mogul (these ungainly-looking machines were universally known as “Crabs”) from the East Lancs Railway. Last time I saw one of these in steam was around 50 years ago: it was black and dirty, but somehow more real than this beautifully-restored specimen. Great to see 13065 today though!
A Rail Diaries page will appear, but not before a second attempt tomorrow – fingers crossed for some sunshine.
