The 38th LUPTS Bus Tour: Saturday 3 May 2014

 

The Magnificent Severn

 

Ex Crosville CRG106 was used for the trip. Seen here at Sainsbury’s in Whitchurch – a good venue for a morning coffee stop and for other purposes.

 

Ex-SR Battle of Britain Class 34053 ‘Sir Keith Park’ displays the LUPTS headboard on the train used by the party for the departure from Bridgnorth.

The Engine House at Highley. No 3 ‘Sir Haydn’, on loan from the Tal-y-Llyn Railway, act as a suitable place for the headboard to rest while the party made their way round.

 

The recently unveiled plaque at Kidderminster to Alan Atkinson, the late and much missed former LUPTS President who died in 2013.

34053 pauses briefly for a group photograph before attaching onto the front of the train which took the party back from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth.
