Severn Valley railway one of a lot

The 1500 class of locomotive of which only 10 were built was a Great Western Railway design but they were actually built by British Railways after nationalisation. Here it is approaching Highley station

These were primarily used for moving empty coaching stock in & out of Paddington. A 15XX looks completely out of place here but it is none the less a pleasing shot
Bill Phillips: You have hurt its' feelings now.

I see many people using this train - can I see steam -smoke? I saw the GWR also in Torquay.
Bill Phillips: There is a gentle puff or two of smoke Philine. The South west was the real heart of the GWR

The dark and heavy sky adds a lot to this fine shot Bill.
