The return working from the previous photograph, seen passing through Evesham station later in the day.   The tour had been originally routed via Kemble for the return journey, but was eventually switched to the Cotswold Line, enabling me to photograph it in both directions.   I think I made a better job of the return leg, having taken into account the lessons learnt from the earlier attempt.
 
The locomotive is one of four examples of the class that have made it into preservation, although initially it looked like the locomotive might end up as a source of spares for the other three.   Happily, it ended up being restored to operational status in its own right, and is now (as can be seen here) passed for main line operations.
