This locomotive was returned to service in 2010, although not quite in time for "GWR 175", and as a result, I made a return visit later in the year to catch up with it.   This was just prior to the second embankment collapse just south of Toddington, and 2807 was working services top-and-tailed with a class 47 diesel between Gotherington and Stanway Viaduct.  
 
Unfortunately, it was a very overcast day, which made photography very difficult, and make things worse, I had dressed for wet weather rather than cold.  As a result I abandoned the session somewhat early; if I'd held on a little longer, I might have got a little more light to work with.
