Good evening Astwood and everyone. I hope you do well with your refurbished tank and hopefully there will be no more problems.

I was out last night, we were helping out at a Saint Georges Concert in Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. We had a good evening but the Concert sadly wasn't so good;

Glad you had a good night SB i use to go up there for the coin and stamp auctions in the 1980s

It's a Beautiful building Astwood, I understand it was built as a hotel. Probably because it's next to the Railway station. Apparently it didn't do so well.

I don't think any of the present route was GWR, but was Midland Railway. The GWR did run the route Oxford to Worcester a bit to the south, and the route from Worcester to Wolverhampton via Kidderminster..
