71000 Duke of Gloucester, BR 8P Pacific

Photographed entering Bridgnorth station on a wet Sunday morning, 8 March 2009.
Magnificently restored from the heap of bits I saw at Loughborough about 20-30 years ago! The Severn Valley Steam Gala weekend was this first opportunity I had to see this, which I believe is now the most powerful steam locomotive in Britain.
