I think that there was a night movement back to the Severn Valley after that, but I could be wrong.

Hi Dave, I kept all my books, they are stashed away somewhere. I once travelled over the line on a charter to York hauled by a 47 and back on a 46 back in 83 not long before it closed with a lad by the name of Andy Gudgeon. Happy Days!!

Hi Dave, I too was born in Pelsall in the 70's and used to watch the trains at Ryders Hayes and Rushall Crossing. Did you ever keep any records of what used to pass by? I remember seeing an HST from Ron Rowe's farm once from a field full of Datsun cars lol. Regards Mark.
