60007 Sir Nigel Gresley, LNER Class A4 4-6-2
Photographed at Bewdley, Worcestershire, on the morning of 6 March 2009. This was taken just before 60007 went light engine to Kidderminster at 09:45 to take the first train of the day (travelling tender first) down to Bridgnorth. Although Bridgnorth is north of Kidderminster, "down" trains are those departing from Kidderminster and "up" trains are those departing from Bridgnorth. Such is the convention on the Severn Valley Railway.
Several volunteers had just spent about an hour polishing the locomotive, note that even the buffers are sparkling!
