Taken off Red Lane, north of Hampton, although the proliferation of vegetation on the embankment since my last visit here in May 2013 has resulted in using alternative locations for subsequent tours.  

After the disaster of October 2013 where my attempts to photograph the locomotive were frustrated by the weather, I succeeded in 2014, when the weather  was much improved, although as previously noted, the vegetation was now an issue.  The tour is heading west out of Evesham on the return to Tysley via Worcester.
