73005 transferred to the Severn Valley Railway on 9th Jan'04 and was put onto the engineers trains shortly after. Andy Jones captured the ED in its E6005 guise one grey and cold January day when the loco was in and around Kidderminster.

On 21st Feb. 2004, a railtour visited the S.V.R. and E6005 was called upon to drag the load 13 from Kidderminster to Bewdley as ECS, before running round and returning it to the carraige shed where it remained connected to provide train heat from its diesel power unit. Something the 'JA' sub-class can do which 'JBs' cannot. D.Hurd captured the events, with E6005 seen here at Kidderminster and Bewdley.

E6005 managed to keep the return leg moving up the gradient to Kidder', the speed dropping to 12mph. Not a bad effort for 600hp pulling 450 tonnes!

6005 at Kidderminster, prep to depart ecs to Bewdley 21/2/04. D.Hurd
