GWR 2-6-2T Prairie 5164 approaches Knowlesands on its departure from Bridgnorth early April 1982
Generally preserved railways today have matching sets of stock both colour wise and type - not so back in the 80's though here we see a mainly GWR rake but with at least one LMS and the end vehicle being a LNER Gresley

47049 climbs the Lickey at Vigo in June 1982 a long long time before the wires went up!
Any details of the working greatly appreciated though I suspect it is heading for Washwood Heath possibly from East Usk

50045 Achillies passes Whitestone near Hereford on 9-4-81 and is about to pass under the main Worcester to Hereford road the A4103. This is the only photo I have at this location and even then it was becoming overgrown and have Photo Shopped a couple of sapplings out of the foreground.
It may be that the lineside greenery has been cut back at some time after 1981 but it is not an inspiring location really.
It is one of the few shots I have of 50's when they were working daytime services on this line. Having moved from Devon in 1979 I think I had become saturated with them and rather took them for granted in the Worcester- Hereford area
Note the double track is still in use

47079 [GEORGE JACKSON] GJ CHURCHWARD heads south past Ashchurch loop on 28.11.81
Whilst not totally sharp I have added this as a contrast to a previously uploaded shot of tnt 56's at the same spot
Well before the reopening of Ashchurch for Tewkesbury station which was on 1 June 1997.
The original station had opened 24 June 1840 and of course was the junction for trains to Evesham and Upton on Severn. It was then closed by the British Railways Board in November 1971.
At least two others people are looking on from the footbridge, in the background can be seen a double decker bus. Where the bus is parked is now houses but I think it may have been a turning circle for a local service at the time. Can anyone confirm this.
