British Railways Standard Class 4 tank No. 80072, a guest locomotive at the Severn Valley Railway's Spring Steam Gala, thunders into Bewdley with two maroon Mk.1 coaches during a Matt Fielding charter on 22nd March 2018. This loco ran on the SVR from January 1963. Although not an accurate re-creation of the loco and stock, it is rare the Valley has a loco that is still in steam today visiting the line that it ran on during steam days. No. 80072 is in the last few years of its boiler certificate after returning to steam in 2009.
