On 24th July 2020 there was an interesting light engine movement in the county when class 40 diesel locomotive No.40145 was sent from Barrow Hill to Kidderminster (SVR) to collect fellow class mate No.40106.  Robert Pritchard was at Blakedown Station in time to take this lovely photograph of the pair heading for Crewe.
