RAW rework
Recomposed, lighting adjustments and object removal in PSP.
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.
