Duchess in Worcester 17 August 2017

46233 'Duchess of Sutherland' pictured working a charter train from London Victoria to Worcester and return. Please note that the locomotive looks black in some of the photos as it is in shadow on the side presented for photography, Shrub Hill is situated such that enthusiasts on platform 2 or the overbridge are shooting directly at the sun therefore I prefer taking shots there on cloudy days for best definition.

Notice the thick black smoke just before the train departed, I imagine the residents at the bottom end of Newtown Road were well impressed when that little lot wafted past their houses! This had cleared to pure white steam exhaust once the train had travelled a few hundred yards.
