DMU Group West Midlands Photo Charters

(In Conjuction with 30742 Charters)

On Friday 24th Feburary the DMU Group undertook its first night photography shoot at Bewdley as a fundraiser to raise money for the upkeep of our five Class 108 vehicles


The Idea was the brainchild of our webmaster Mark Miller who is an avid photographer in his spare time, with the help of Martin Creese at 30742 we decided upon a night shoot at Bewdley Station where the units are kept

Around 15 photographers attended the shoot and along with help from Professional Photographer Jack Boskett who brought along some re-enactors we set about creating some shots around the north end of the station.


The shoot was a great success and our thanks go to Martin Creese, Jamie Green, Jack Boskett and all Members involved.



DMU Group WM/30742 Charters present their second night photography shoot at Arley Station.


DMU Group West Midlands/30742 Charters are pleased to announce a Second Night Photography shoot at Arley Station on the Severn Valley Railway on Friday 29th September 2017, This will use the three Car Class 108 unit (52064/59250/51941) owned by the DMU Group West Midlands and based at Bewdley on the SVR.


Participents will join the Unit at Bewdley where ample car parking is available and run down on the unit to Arley station and back after the Photoshoot and for those who would like Fish and Chips on the way up there should hopefully be a run down into Bewdley before we depart.


Floodlights will be set up for the evenings shoot on arrival at Arley and there may be the opportunity to purchase Tea, Coffee and Soft Drinks from our on board Buffet Counter in centre car 59250 during the evening (This is subject to having available staff to man the counter)


Full details are still being finalised but we expect the shoot to commence after the days SVR services at a departure time of around 18:30hrs with the return arriving back at Bewdley no later than 22:30.


Proceeds gained from the shoot will be donated to the DMU Group WM for the upkeep of our Class 108 Vehicles, There will be 30 spaces available at £45 per photographer and booking details can be found here;
