The Severn Valley’s Third guest for their Autumn steam gala was previous long time resident on the railway Ivatt class 2 46521, and was used in filming of “Oh Doctor Beaching!” gaining the unofficial name ‘Blossom’. It moved to the GCR in 2000 but returned for the SVR’s fiftieth anniversary, paired with resident GWR prairie 4566 to allow 8 coach trains to be hauled.

4566 was humbly working away behind ensuring that 46521 had nothing to worry about in relatively new matching BR black.
