In 2001, 4472 "Flying Scotsman" worked several tours along the Cotswold Line.  Having missed the first visit by in April 2001 (ironically, I was in Peterborough, its "home turf"), I got a second chance in June when it returned from Worcester on a rail tour.    I had originally decided to photograph it from Worcester Rd with a long lens, but the amout of vegetation blocking the view from this location resulted in switching to the down station platform and a change of lens.   It was also fortunate that the train had to wait a late-running down service and was held in the station rather than at the signal box (which would not be necessary now after the redoubling).
