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.     

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.  

[I mentioned earlier in the collection that "Sir Nigel Gresley" was the second member of the class I'd travelled behind; 60009 was the first, in 2002]
