An unusual pairing on the AVR

THE Avon Valley Railway ran a gala on March 16 – at short notice (RM Feb, p73) and on a day with no timetabled service – after the opportunity suddenly arose to make use of Hudswell, Clarke 1742 of 1946. 

The steam loco was dropped off from road transport a few days earlier while en route, returning to its Buckinghamshire Railway Centre base.

The steam loco double- headed the 16.50 from Bitton to Oldland Common with resident 0-4-0D No. 70043 Grumpy (Barclay 358 of 1941).

They are seen passing Class 107 DMU No. SC52006, shortly after leaving Bitton.
