The locomotive returned to the area in May as one of the guest locomotives of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's "Give My Regards to Broadway" event.
This photograph just escaped being a disaster. I'd intended to have the camera set for multiple exposures, but had switched to single shot prior to this and promptly forgot to set it up for multiple images. What was supposed to have been the first frame of a sequence became the only frame of the sequence; fortunately I had just about got the tender in frame and the camera's resolution meant that a recomposition would not detract too much from the image.
The image is still a work-in-progress, as I'd like to see if I can do something about the skyline, so it is possible that I may switch this to another version.
