It's fifty years since the very first steam locomotive arrived at the Severn Valley Railway.

And today - to mark the occasion for ITV cameras - the SVR steamed a little tank engine up and down platform two at Bridgnorth.

This remarkable shot of GWR 813 was captured using a drone by our camera operator Pat Fenelon.

The original engine was 3205 and was driven from Stourbridge Shed to Bridgnorth by BR driver John Hill back in 1967.
