Taken at my regular location just of Red Lane, west of Evesham.   After my effort with "Earl of Mount Edgcumbe" the previous month, I had planned to see if I could find a new location that offered a view less obscured by vegetation, but had not had a chance to do this in the intervening period.   Having given the matter some thought, I eventually decided to return to this location this time round, but do intend to do some location scouting in 2015 for another location where I can produce similar shots.     
 
For once, this tour came through in the late morning, rather than the late afternoon/early evening of some of its predecessors.   At this point it was running around 10 minutes later than the schedule I had obtained, which perhaps aided with the lighting conditions as the sun was slightly more in my favour at this time. 
 
After some consideration, I have decided to replace my 2002 photograph of the locomotive passing through Evesham station with this one, as I felt that photograph was not really of sufficient quality to justify having both it and this one on the site at the same time.
