I looked in this forum and couldn't find a thread on the Goods Gala which is happening the weekend after next, so here it is. It looks like a cracking event celebrating 2857's 100th birthday and Eardington Station celebrating it's 150th anniversary of opening. http://www.svr.co.uk/SEItem.aspx?a=123 I notice that the 1 pm departure on both days is diesel hauled yet on Sunday this is N1 and is therefore steam hauled by the Bridgnorth engine. http://www.svr.co.uk/pdf/Special%20Events/SVR%20Goods%20Gala%202018.pdf

2857 is booked to depart Kidderminster at 10-30 tomorrow with the goods train.

Will it start from one of the platform roads, so that visitors can have a look at the goods stock before departure?

( Passenger departures from KDR tomorrow morning are at 09-50, 11-20
and just into the afternoon at 12-10.)

Looking at the Traffic Notice for 02 June 2018 (available on the public side of SVRLive)
https://www.svrlive.com/traffic-notices-and-wtt

Under the ‘Kidderminster Shunting’ header there is mention of the 9.55 arriving in P1. Is this 2857 coming in on the freight from Bewdley?
Does this answer the question?
