Taken during the line's "Prairie Farewell" weekend event, to mark the imminent withdrawal of the locomotive for overhaul.   It is seen here with classmate 5541, reversing onto what would be the penultimate northbound working from Lydney Junction of that weekend, with the locomotives double-heading the last two workings of the day.   

The locomotive is running in a London Transport livery used on steam locomotives working on the London Underground system.
