As I mentioned earlier in the collection, I'd gone to this gala for a opportunity to see 6233 as this was one of its first engagements
after its restoration had been completed. I spent most of the day behind this locomotive, having transferred to
its train at Hampton Loade from 42765. This photograph was taken towards the end of the day, when it was a little
quieter, and I could get a (reasonably) clear shot of the locomotive.
I did eventually managed to do a mainline tour behind 6233
in 2003; however I have decided not to reuse the shot that was on my Fotopic site of that tour at this stage as I don't think it was
all that good.
