This was taken a short distance south from Worcester Shrub Hill station, at  a bridge over the railway, evidently quite a popular location going by the  number of people who were there (including an old friend who I hadn't seen in a  few years).   I had spent the earlier part of the day in Gloucester, travelling there by train, so used the break in my journey at Worcester to photograph the return  working of this tour.

Unfortunately, the weather - having been sunny for most of the day - chose  this point to become more overcast, and as a result, I ended up with a somewhat  duller image than I obtained with 46233 earlier in the month.  In deciding whether to use the original JPG image or this, I chose this version as I've  managed to bring out more detail of the locomotive's motion, but - for the  moment anyway - I've decided not to sell this image.
