I am sorry to have to advise that Tim O'Grady, has died after a long illness aged 78. Tim, always a bright spark worked at 85A Worcester for a number of years as Fireman in the 1950-60s, always took an active roll on the shed and teamed up with the late Geoff Truby, they featured in an article with a few photographs in the January 1990 edition of the 'Railway magazine'.
Tim's funeral will take place on Thursday August 25th at 1 pm at the Worcester crematorium.
Regards Chris Wilkinson

Be aware that for much of August there will no services from Worcester to London via the Cotswold line, though a few peak series run via Cheltenham.  Trains on the Cotswold line will normally be formed of three-car class 166 diesel multiple units (such as No.166028 see below at Worcester on 30th July) and will operate as far as Oxford or Hanborough.

The lines around Worcester Shrub Hill were affected by closure during the period from Saturday 6th to Wednesday 10th August when freight trains between South Wales and Round Oak or Handsworth diverted via Hereford and Malvern. See the News page for photographs
