Taken at the occupation crossing next to "The Valley"'s south car park.  

This was the locomotives second working of the day.  However, the turntable at Twyford could not accommodate the locomotive, and so it could not be turned at the end of each working.   As a result, "Cromwell" would shunt the carriage stock out of Tywford station at the end of each working, releasing "Lydia" to run round; this meant that workings alternated between the locomotive running  forwards and running backwards.
