What a depressing picture of Duchess of Sutherland, I just had a look at the timings and it was at Abergavenny station for 45 mins. If I'd known, I'd have popped over there.

Great pictures.

Now me and my mate's trip to SVR on 8th Aug. we started at bridgnorth at were destined to travel behind 45110 and the rake of gresleys, not a perfect match but what the hey. i had a bit of time to snap the sheds.
