The first steam tour through Evesham in 2016 wasn't originally supposed to be the first one, and wasn't originally supposed to have come through Evesham!   A planned tour passing through the previous day was cancelled (probably just as well from a photography point of view as the weather wasn't so good), and this tour was originally supposed to have routed via the Great Western main line to Bath and then via Sapperton Bank, but concerns over loadings on the latter prompted a route change over the Cotswold Line instead.  
 
I chose this location as probably the most convenient one for the lighting conditions (sunny with some cloud).  Had the tour been scheduled for the previous Sunday, this would not have been an option as the River Avon had flooded that weekend, and this location would have been under water.   As it was, the ground was still somewhat saturated, and access to this location (the bridge west of the station) was somewhat muddy.
