The locomotive passes through the birthplace of the man responsible for its creation : Sir Henry Fowler (a commemorative plaque to him is located on the former Midland station building across the car park).  I believe that this may well be the first time a representative of the class has been through Evesham in preservation (the tour had been originally diagrammed with LNER A3 class no. 60103 "Flying Scotsman", but 46100 was substituted instead, due to mechanical issues with 60103).   
 
I don't think that this is one of my best photographs as I was shooting almost directly into the light from this angle.   Under other circumstances, I might have shot the locomotive crossing the River Avon, but because of the above significance of this working, I wanted a photograph emphasising the fact it was in Evesham.   On that, at least, I believe I succeeded.   The photograph is available to purchase, although I probably would not recommend using it in any larger format products. 
 
The photograph was published in the "Evesham Journal" on the 2nd November 2017, along with a short article written by me explaining the significance of the visit (This was the second time I'd had a photograph published in the "Journal" and my first ever combined photograph and text publication).
