I didn't have to wait quite as long for my next encounter with 3717, as less than a month later it visited the Dean Forest Railway for their "Severn & Wye 200th Anniversary" event.  I had been looking for a good lineside position for a couple of years and this point near Upper Forge worked well (it's on a public footpath that runs next to the line at this point, and is also reasonably close enough to Norchard to make taking a tripod there not too difficult).    

The pilot locomotive just seen on the left was 5542, and the corresponding photograph will be seen later in the collection.
