Cardiff, Gloucester & Worcester 08 July : First day of a prolonged trip to Crewe for the DRS Gresty Bridge Open Day on 10th July; it's actually cheaper to use a Freedom of the Severn & Solent 8/15 Rover AND a Heart of England 7-day Rover than advance singles between Portsmouth and Crewe! Most photos from today are from Cardiff Central, Gloucester and Worcester Shrub Hill, with a few shots from Worcester Foregate Street. Many thanks to Deke Phillips for overnight accomodation etc.

Northampton, Rugby, Stafford & Chester 11 July : The idea today was to get from Derby to Wrexham, but since the first train via Crewe was not until 14.38, I just played trains really, travelling from Derby to Birmingham New Street, Northampton, Rugby, Stafford, Crewe and Chester to Wrexham General. It being a Sunday, there wasn't a lot going on, but I did manage to capture WSR 67013 on a Marylebone service at Rugby (?). Day Three of the Heart of England Rover, and another fine day. There are a also couple of photos from Derby, and three from Crewe.

Southampton 17 July : After spending Friday night in Southampton, I passed a bit of time on Saturday morning at Saxon Road footbridge, just a few yards from my brother's house. These are some of the photos I took during that time, returning home to Gosport (via Portsmouth Harbour) later in the day. Sunny & hot!

Worcester, Cheltenham, Newport & Cardiff 16 July : The return from Pershore, using the Freedom of Severn & Solent Rover, journeys were Pershore to Worcester Shrub Hill, Cheltenham Spa, Newport, Cardiff Central, then Newport to Southampton Central, where I spent the night at my brother's house. Disappointingly little at Newport except for one freight and two light engine moves. Rain at times, sunny periods.
