4965,, Bearley, 5Z66, 9th October 2018
GWR "Hall" Class 4-6-0 No. 4965 "Rood Ashton Hall" gingerly approaches Bearley station with 5Z66, the 12:53 trial run train from Stratford-upon-Avon to Smallheath Sidings. The crew keep a lookout to make sure there is plenty of clearance between the platform edge and the loco's cylinders, this being the first steam run over the route for some time now that Vintage Trains have a new operating TOC in place. The train ran outwards from Tyseley via Shirley and returned via Dorridge. 13:05¾, Tuesday 9th October 2018. Digital Image No. GMPK6123.
